Video Of The Week: Training for London with the Dutch Men's Eight



This week's video features more slow-motion rowing with Olympians, again with a solid soundtrack, produced by the Dutch men's eight as they trained for London 2012. The video shows the crew from multiple angles throughout each part of the stroke (with views showing both the bodies and the bladework), making it a very useful coaching tool, as well as another example of fine technical rowing from an Olympic-caliber crew. In keeping with our last few videos, it was shot in Varese, Italy – certainly the place to be outside of Eton Dorney in 2012! Also, recently spotted back on Oakland Estuary was Dutch seven seat (and former Cal Bear) Olivier Siegelaar (pictured here along with another former Bear, Spencer Crowley), who has been training at CRC.

  1. That smooth finish and quick catch, with the way the drive makes the boat glide over the water....it's all the reason I do this sport.
