VOTW: Tour of the Devon Boathouse in OKC, with Ryan Monaghan
The VOTW this week is a guided tour of the Devon Boathouse in Oklahoma City with 2010 US National Team member and two-time Cambridge Blue Ryan Monaghan, who is currently training with the High Performance group at the facility. The Devon Boathouse was designed by renowned architect Rand Elliott, who gave the building its distinctive shape and lighting in order to evoke the bow of a boat cutting through the water. The training facilities, which are shared by the OKC U.S. National High Performance Rowing and Canoe/Kayak teams, as well as the varsity programs at Oklahoma City University, are extensive and well-maintained, as the video will show. For more on the Devon Boathouse, check out the official website of OKC Riversport, and see the online coverage of the Oklahoma Regatta Festival on RowingNews.com, with further photos and video interviews from the event (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday) that included the annual OGE NightSprints (500m racing under the lights at night on the Oklahoma River).
