Voices – Row to Rio #3

Considered the eyes and the ears of the boat, hear how the GB Rowing Team coxes propel on our rowers.

The competitive streak within the GB Rowing Team doesn’t stop with the rowers but emanates through the coxes who propel them on to achieve their best. Considered the eyes and the ears, the coxes provide the link between the coach and the athletes to ensure nothing is left by the time their crew crosses the finish line.

Head to YouTube to check out our short film to see how the coxes prepare their crews for the best performance of their lives during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
