Video Of The Week: Smooth Sculling Success



The above video showcases the beauty of sculling, and is a great Video Of The Week to kick off the New Year. Estonian standout Jüri Jaanson—Estonia's most successful rower and a two-time Olympic silver medalist (Athens in the M1x and Beijing in the M2x along with Tonu Endrekson)—shows off a little of his smooth sculling technique for which he was known throughout his career, which spanned six Olympiads. Thanks very much to Marek for submitting the video!

It's 2013, and that means we're getting ready to announce the winner of our December rowing recruiting video contest—the winning entry will be posted as our VOTW on Monday, 7 January. Thanks to everyone for all your submissions and good luck with your off season training! Also, coming up this Friday is Part Two of Joe Abrams's account of Masters Nationals, 2012.

  1. Bryan, that's a lovely video. Did you know that He trained on a Rowperfect in order to work out the boat speeds he'd need to win the Olympic Gold?
