British rowing athletes at the World Rowing Championships in Sarasota, Florida, USA, have revealed the importance of data analytics in working towards the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Although often thought of as a “pulling” sport, in fact, rowing is much more dependent on the “pushing” forces of a rower’s legs. To demonstrate this, SAS, the Official Analytics Partner of British Rowing, invited double Olympic champion Helen Glover to row in an indoor practice tank rigged with sensors on the oars and footplates.
Ahead of this Sunday’s Cancer Research UK Boat Races, two of British Rowing’s medallists from the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Zoë Lee and Constantine Louloudis, have revealed what it takes to be successful in one of the oldest annual sporting events in the world.
Data analysis from this weekend’s GB Rowing Team Senior and under-23 third and final team assessment will provide valuable insights into the physical condition of the squad and enable training schedules to be individually tailored according to Mark Homer, Head of Performance Science & Medicine at British Rowing.

SAS has welcomed returning rowers from Rio, ready to crunch the numbers from the squad’s most successful overseas Games ever. The GB Rowing team is already starting to look ahead to preparations for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics.
Former Olympian gold-medal-winning rower Mark Hunter says GB Rowing Team will face its "'sternest test' and, for some, is the only chance to compete against their toughest rivals before Rio".
Having rowed in both events, Louloudis is under no illusions as to how the two vary.
Next week’s Great Britain Rowing Team Olympic Trials are ‘do or die’ for the rowers according to former Olympic Champion Mark Hunter.
