Rowing

Rowing

Sport Overview

Rowing involves racing on a straight course on the water on a boat propelled by oars.
Unlike canoeing, rowers row with their backs facing the direction of movement. Their legs are fixed to the boat, and their seats slide back and forth along rails. Rowers mainly use their legs to propel the boat.
