The World Rowing Indoor Championships 2019 are taking place in Long Beach, California on 24 February following the success of the first ever World Indoor Championships earlier this year.

The inaugural event attracted over 2,500 participants from 33 countries competing for World Championship medals and saw three new world records set. This year they’re looking to include new events such as 500m sprints, relays and team events.

World record holder Graham Benton took home gold in the 40-49 men’s open 2,000m at this year’s event and said of the event.

“As soon as it was announced, it appealed to me,” he said. “I think the fact that it was a new competition, somewhere different, and it was backed by World Rowing as an official world indoor rowing event, which made it something I really wanted to win.”
