Seats: Row to Rio #4

There are not enough seats for everyone… we are all here to win Olympic medals.


Check out this short film ‘Seats’ to feel the emotion around the first steps towards being selected for Rio 2016.

The intensity of the training often challenges the GB Rowing Team to exhaustion but it is the emotional demand on athletes, coaches and support staff where it hurts the most. Friends become rivals and coaches have to select athletes against such small margins to decide who will give Great Britain the best chance of winning medals.
