Teamwork

Interesting poll on Row2k– would you rather win the eight or the single at the Olympics?

I’m fascinated by the fact that the eight is winning. It speaks strongly to the teamwork mentality of rowing; the majority of people polled would rather be part of the BEST TEAM then to be the ABSOLUTE BEST.

In many ways, this attitude is what makes rowing such a fantastic college sport, and one of the reasons why I love coaching the sport. Bringing teams to the point of full commitment and sacrifice to each other creates an experience like no other. I think this is what you see reflected in the Row2k Poll– those who are involved in rowing understand the rich rewards of being part of a fully committed group.
