Celebrate the best in rowing – all together
Rowers pride themselves in being part of a sport that’s all about teamwork. The World Rowing Federation, FISA, counts teamwork as one of its five core values, understanding that by working together to achieve a common goal, everyone achieves more. With that in mind we are updating our annual awards and bringing them all together as one celebration of the World Rowing Awards.
To mark and applaud the best in rowing for the year, we will be celebrating all winners at a gala evening on Friday, 23 November 2018 in Berlin, Germany.
And we want to hear from you.
On 17 September 2018 – following the conclusion of the World Rowing Championships – we will open up the nomination process for you to tell us who was the best in 2018. Making a nomination will be easy, using individual online forms on the World Rowing website.
We also have an additional award for 2018 – the World Rowing Sustainability Award. (click here for full story). This marks World Rowing’s ongoing commitment to environmentally sustainable practices and our respect for the environment of which rowing is so much a part.
So, start thinking about who you would like to nominate.
