Great Quotes and Boats

“I coach and cox and one thing I tell my crews is to breathe slowly through their nose on recovery to help slow down the slide. This is because novice rowers tend to start panting and they take their stroke in time with this. Quick, forceful exhale on the drive tightens the core muscles and slow, controlled inhale provides a longer recovery time.”

– Valerie Gorman, lexicographer, rower and rowing coach.

– Dr. Cameron Nichol (1987- ), Olympic Rower 2012, World Rowing Championship Silver Medalist 2010, 2011.
