Rowing was scheduled to be a part of the first modern Olympics in Athens in 1896 but the competition was cancelled due to high waves. Women's rowing events were added in 1976.
The Basics
  • Boats are also called shells.
    There are two types of Olympic rowing events, sculling and sweep oar. The rower has two oars in sculling and one oar in sweep oar. There are two main distinctions between rowing and paddling sports such as canoeing. One is that the rower always sits with his or her back to the direction in which the boat is going. The other is that the rower uses an oar that pivots on an oarlock, not an unsupported paddle. The coxswain is a lightweight crew member who faces the rowers and directs them. Only some races include coxswains.

Government spokesman Tilemahos Hitiris said Wednesday that 50 percent of the digging of the artificial lakes and other land clearing should be completed by September at the rowing center - the only Olympic venue ahead of schedule. The center is expected to be completed in January 2004. The dispute over the site in Schinias, about 18 miles north of Athens, has an added significance following the appointment Monday of the International Rowing Federation chief as the main overseer for the Athens Games. Denis Oswald of Switzerland replaced Jacques Rogge, the new president of the International Olympic Committee. Oswald is expected in Athens for the next IOC inspection visit in late September.

XXVIIth Olympics
September 2000

    Dates are GMT in this box September 24th
  • OK, this is getting silly. Gold for Redgrave and cohort yesterday, silver (the first women's Olympic rowing medal) for the women's quad today in the tightest of finishes, and finally, to round off the regatta, gold for all nine of the British men's eight, beating the rest of the big boys at their own game, peaking at exactly the right time after silver last year and defeats this summer. Three rowing medals, thirteen Olympic champions and four Olympic runners up, our best result for decades. Huge congratulations to everybody involved, (and a particular well done from RQ to Guin, to Tim, and to Rowley, Fred and Ben H-D).

Check Availability Browse Accommodations Buy Olympic Event Tickets ... Submit A Special Request Olympic Sports History ROWING Only four sports have been in every modern Olympics. Rowing would be a fifth, but all five events scheduled in 1896 were cancelled because of bad weather. However, the rowing events did come off in 1900, and the sport has been a staple of the Olympic program ever since. Women's rowing was added in 1976 and lightweight events joined the program in 1996. All Olympic rowing competition has the same basic format, beginning with qualifying heats. The fastest qualifiers go into the semifinal and the others enter a repechage round. The top repechage finishers also advance to the semifinal. The first six semifinal finishers race in the final and the next six enter a petit final, for 7th through 12th places.
The races
The boats are held by the stern on starting pontoons and the bows are aligned on the start line. The rower in the bow seat may raise his/her hand to indicate that the crew is not ready, up until the time when the starter conducts a roll call of the crews. After the last crew has been named in the roll call, the starter raises his/her red flag and gives the warning command "Attention" and, after a pause, says "Go", simultaneously dropping his flag. In the case of a false start, a bell is rung and the starter waves a red flag to recall the crews. Crews are allowed only one false start each before being eliminated. A re-start can also be called for equipment breakage within 100 meters of the start. Straying from a lane is punishable by the umpire by disqualification if interference takes place with another boat. The winner is the boat whose bow touches the finish line first, monitored by judges and a photo-finish camera. The umpire must raise his white flag at the end of a race to signify that it has been completed in accordance with the rules and that there has been no protest.

History Rules Athletes Calendar ... Sports Entry Forms
Rowing is a highly developed and popular sport in many countries. It combines a graceful spectacle with sharp competition. The field of play takes place in a natural scenic environment, such as a lake, river or a canal, which adds to the allure of rowing.  Watching the sport once, either in person or on television, turns almost anyone into an avid fan of the sport. The long and narrow boats, the colourful oars, the synchronised crews - ranging from one to eight athletes - are all ingredients for a very successful mix. This combination creates an exciting sport to watch and cheer on for spectators.   Description
In Olympic rowing 14 different boat classes are raced, eight sculling events in which two oars are used, one in each hand and six sweep-oared events in which the rower uses one oar with both hands. The sculling boat classes are the single, the double and the quadruple sculls with crews of one, two or four athletes respectively, as well as the lightweight double. The sweep row categories include the pair, the four, the lightweight four (for men only) and the eight with coxswain, which is perhaps the most spectacular rowing event of all.
