This winter, the Huskies have been busy putting in work in the erg room, weight room, and classroom, in preparation for what is shaping up to be a very competitive spring. Winter training is a long, challenging process, but with the team practicing together multiple times a week, teammates are able to motivate each other to keep moving and get faster.
Last weekend, the team competed in “Erg Olympics,” a competition where the team is divided into smaller groups of three to four rowers, and assigned a country. Events competed in include a blindfolded 500m, 100m sprint, a 6k relay, and others. Each year, this practice brings new motivation for the team to make the final push to our spring break training trip to Camp Bob.
On Sunday, February 12, several rowers will be competing at the C.R.A.S.H-B. Indoor Rowing Championships, in Boston, MA. This competition attracts some of the top rowers from countries around the world, and is a great experience for those new to rowing as well as those with years of experience.
