ROWING
This sporting event originated in England from the traditional boat race between Oxford and Cambridge universities, and is one of today's major events at the games. The race takes place over 2000 m, for the one-man skiff or eight-man boat. Two red flags mark the finish line and to avoid cheating, there is a new starting system which holds the boats back.This sport can be practised with or without a coxswain, a light-weight team member who sits facing the direction of the race, and guides the team, who are positioned with their backs to the race direction.
