The second issue of the 2012 campaign for Rowing News is on its way. This issue features coverage of the C.R.A.S.H.-B. Sprints, with a series of short interviews with the top performers last Sunday (including Rose City Rowing Club phenom Ruth Narode, outstanding Grand Valley State novice Nate Biolchini, who posted a 6:06.3 despite having started in the sport just five months ago, and two-time Olympian Greg Ruckman, among many others). We also checked in with Danish lightweight world record holder Henrik Stephansen on this plans for 2012, caught up with CRI's Matt Zatorski about the 2012 'What Works' Summit (which featured appearances by Bob Ernst of UW, and German Rowing Federation head coach Hartmut Buschbacher), and spoke with Boston University's Tom Bohrer about how to develop mid-season racing technique after a winter off the water. Add to this our features on the amazing health benefits of adaptive rowing, and an inside look at the University of Washington men's program (including an interview with coaches Michael Callahan and Luke McGee), along with cover girl Susan Francia's interview, and you'll be off to a great start for spring racing season.
