Video Of The Week: A Four-Minute Window into Aviron France
This week's video comes to us from Aviron France, and offers a five-minute introduction to the sport, along with members of the French national rowing federation. While it's not the most in-depth of tutorials (it's a promo piece for the 2015 world championships, to be held on Lake Aiguebelette), what it does offer the seasoned rower is a glimpse of French rowing technique both on the water and on land. Of particular interest are the shots of 2013 world silver medalist Jérémie Azou and double partner Stany Delayre—a combination that we missed in Chungju due to Delayre's unfortunate training injury (resulting from a boat collision), but one that has serious potential with a view toward Rio, having taken fourth at the London Games.
