A Games event with fourteen different categories to enjoy
Rowing debuted as a Games sport back in the year 1900 and has been a fixture ever since. In 2020, athletes from around the globe will be competing in fourteen categories of rowing – seven for men and seven for women. There are two forms of rowing events: sculling and sweeping. Sculling is where an athlete uses two oars (one in each hand), whereas sweeping involves the athletes using both arms to propel a single oar. In sculling, there are single, double, and quadruple events, and in sweeping there are pairs, fours and eights (the latter being the only event to feature a coxswain who steers the boat and relays instructions to their teammates). On top of this, there is also a special lightweight double scull event. It’s safe to say that whichever event you go to watch, you’re guaranteed a thrilling competition that won’t leave you disappointed.

Rowing at the Games: A thrilling spectacle that can be enjoyed by all
For fans of other rowing competitions (such as the Asian Games Rowing and San Diego Crew Rowing Classic) or events like the 2020 Games in Tokyo: Sailing event, seeing the rowing at the 2020 Games is highly recommended. It’s a sport that can be enjoyed by anyone, though, thanks to its showcase of peak human strength and stamina. When the number of athletes increases, such as in the fours and eights, timing and teamwork becomes even more important and gives an already exciting sport another technical edge to enjoy. For this year’s edition of the Games, rowing is scheduled to take place between the 24th and 31st of July. These races will be hosted at Sea Forest Waterway, a superb venue located on Odaiba, an artificial island in Tokyo Bay. It features a permanent grandstand with seating for 2,000 people as well as temporary grandstand seating for another 14,000.
