COVID-19 : Postponement of the 2020 European Rowing Junior Championships
Coastal rowing is about to get a whole lot younger. The International Olympic Committee has announced that coastal rowing will feature at the 2022 Youth Olympic Games (YOG) to be held in Senegal.
The 2019 World Rowing Junior Championships is doubling as the test event for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The five days of racing concluded today with the juniors racing for medals at the Sea Forest Waterway. Today saw the best rowing conditions of the week with flat water and an ever-so-small cross wind. Temperatures remained in the low 30’s degrees Celsius.
The 2019 World Rowing Junior Championships moved on to semifinal racing at the Tokyo Olympic regatta course. The water was calmer than previous days with a tail wind and a bit of a bounce on the Sea Forest Waterway course on Tokyo Bay. Today's racing was all about finishing in a top three position to be able to get into the finals on Sunday.
