RR Video Contest Countdown: WSV Ottensheim, Austria is our pick for No. 2
The above video is our pick for No. 2 overall, and it's easy to see why—making use of innovative camera angles and representing every available boat class, this video is a solid introduction to the sport, from the junior to the elite level. The video was submitted by Clemens Obrecht, who explains that "[WSV Ottensheim] rowing club has been the most successful club at national competitions for the last few years and also brought out outstanding international rowers—for example, the under-23 world champion of 2012 in the women‘s double sculls, Lisa Farthofer, and the winner of the World Rowing Cup in Munich 2012 in the lightweight men’s quadruple sculls, Dominik Sigl." The video was created by canoeist Erwin Trummer, and it's now used as a recruiting tool in Austrian schools to help promote and grow the sport of rowing. Thanks very much to Clemens for sending along the video, and congrats for being named our second overall pick!
Tomorrow marks the official announcement of our No. 1 overall selection, which will be featured as our VOTW, and which will include a little swag for the winner! Stay tuned.
