Video Of The Week: Talking Technique with Some of the World's Best Scullers
This week's video is another strong interview piece from World Rowing FISA, checking in on technique and coaching with three of the world's best sculling crews: The Sinkovic brothers of Croatia (2014 world champions and holders of the new World Best Time in the M2x—a blistering 5:59.72), Jérémie Azou and Stany Delayre of France (2014 world silver medalists in the LM2x), and New Zealand's Emma Twigg (2014 world champion in the W1x). As we get into the 2014-2015 season in earnest, there's never a better time to focus on learning and applying our technique on the water—right now, the cadences are low, and it's very important to take full advantage of the extra time to ingrain the right movements and sequences into our muscle memory. And, the first chance to test our progress against the world is only a few short weeks away: The 50th Head Of The Charles is just 26 days from now. Will you be ready?
Coming up this Wednesday: An inside look at the evolution of crew selection with Virginia men's head coach Frank Biller.
