Great Quotes and Boats

“I think, for me, the stroke is built around your body being in the right position… It has to be properly supported, especially the catch and the transition from the catch into suspension. You’re always trying to set it up such that, when you’re putting everything you have into the stroke, it’s translating into boat speed rather than just wailing on it.”

– Esther Lofgren (February 28, 1985- ), Rower, Olympic Gold Medalist 2012.

Great Quotes and Boats

“For me it was all about independence and proving I can get on without needing anyone… But I’ve decided that’s a load of hogwash.”

– Michelle Lee, first Australian woman to cross the Atlantic Ocean solo (Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2019), fastest woman to row one million meters (2017).

Great Quotes and Boats

“Drills are kind of a balance of, I don’t want to say ‘comfort,’ but a way to find stability while really zeroing in on what’s happening at the catch, and experiencing that in a couple of different ways. A good catch isn’t always the one that feels the lightest, or the most explosive… It’s the one that’s the most effective.”

-Esther Lofgren (February 28, 1985- ), Rower, Olympic Gold Medalist 2012.

Great Quotes and Boats

“As a rowing industry we’ve known for decades that we’re responsible for not communicating how to row well. It’s a really valuable movement, but the problem is we don’t grow up with it, whereas we do running and cycling.”

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