Average Rating
Pub. Date:
The introduction of women’s rowing as an NCAA sport is only one of many factors that helped crew shed its elitist Ivy League image and made it the fast-growing activity that it is today. Now Sports Illustrated veteran photographer Ronald C. Modra and his wife, journalist M.B. Roberts, have filled the need for an authoritative guide for all participants?from high school and college athletes (and their parents, coaches, and trainers) to adults eager to try rowing for the first time. Along with background on the sport’s history going back to ancient times, here’s complete instruction on everything from getting into the shell safely (without shoving your foot through the bottom) to efficient rowing form and competitive racing strategy.
