World Rowing Indoor Virtual Championships
This competition will be a great showcase how to make the best use of technological advance.
At the same time it will demonstrate how professional sports can be realized in times of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Besides the current pandemic it also reveals forward-thinking concepts for regular times as it lowers constraints to participants – i.e. as no travel is needed, athletes face a reduced barrier to entry. And it’s the athlete‘s choice where they set up their rowing ergometer – in their gym, their living room or maybe even on their terrace.
Until the 7th of Febraury, more than 1000 registered participants from over 50 countries compete for their place in the finals. They will be held from 23 – 27 Feb 2021, with Saturday being the main day.
