Rowing 2017 Discussion Thread

5 posts in this topic

FISA congress coming to the end. Biggest drama of course was the proposal fro Tokyo 2020 programme. The results:

 

a) FINA proposal - Replace LM4- with W4- - 94 votes

b) AUS, CHN, DEN, SUI (and CAN) proposal - Replace M4- with LW4- - 67 votes

Yay, finally less lightweight boats in Olympics. Of course it still will have to be confirmed by IOC.

 

Other new resolutions:

  • Paralympic course upgraded from 1 km to 2 km
  • Gender of coxswain won't matter any more. This means that in Olympics a men coxswain can be in W8+ team or a lady coxswain in M8+ team. Only requirement for coxswain is to weight at least 55 kg.
