What is under 23 rowing?
To be an Under-23 rower, you must be 22 or under for the whole racing season, from the first national trials held in October to the World Under-23 Championships in July. Under-23 rowers tend to be rowers who are too old to race as juniors but are still in need of further development before they can rank amongst senior rowers competing at the Olympic Games and the senior World Rowing Championships.
Under-23 rowers compete at the national senior trials held throughout the racing year but are selected and ranked for international under-23 rowing on the basis of their age. Many under-23 rowers experience this development at university, institutions at the core of our sport. There are a number of university championships over various distances throughout the year which test Under-23 rowers’ endurance, strength, speed and power.
The competing boats from universities secure points dependent on the position they finish in national university championships. From this point-scoring system, universities are nationally ranked against each other. From these competitions, the best university athletes can be selected for the World University Rowing Championships, staged every two years. Many elite rowers first started rowing at university.
Parmigiani Spirit Award
What is the Parmigiani Spirit Award?
Parmigiani Fleurier has joined World Rowing in supporting all young rowing scholars around the world with the creation of the Parmigiani Spirit Award.
The Parmigiani Spirit Award will be made to a university rower who has demonstrated the core values of rowing in his/her social, academic and sporting life, and, through these values, also enabled or inspired exceptional success in other people's lives - for example in education, business, sports or charity.
The Parmigiani Spirit Award is open to current university students worldwide who study full time and row regularly for a university rowing club. The winner of the Award will receive a hand-crafted Parmigiani Fleurier watch and the winner’s club will be presented with a new Filippi eight boat.
Each nomination must be made by three club members, supported by the club and endorsed by the university. Only one member may be nominated by each club.
Deadline for nomination is Sunday 30 June 2013 at midnight CET. Click here to view the detailed Eligibility Criteria and the Nomination Form.
FISA will soon need to determine the 2016 Olympic qualification system for rowing for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
