Rowing in Denmark

By:Rylee Andrews

Rowing became popular in Ancient Egypt around 1829. It is played by driving a boat on water with oars. By pushing the water with the oars a force will be made to move the boat. 

There is usually 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 9 players depending on the size of the boat. An Olympic rowing game is played until somebody rows 2000 meters.

There is no scoring in Rowing you just need to row 2000 meters to finish the race.  The field is 2000 meters long. The basic strategy of the game is to row 2000 meters and finish in first

The boats are held and aligned at the start of the race to prevent a false start. Each team is allowed one false starts , if a team gets two false starts then their will be a disqualification.

To play the sport rowing you need to have a racing shell (canoe) and oars to make the boat move.

Rowing is played on water. The distance is 2000 meters. Sometimes the distance may be more than 2000 meters based on the size of the boat.

Rowing is one of the oldest Olympic sports. It has been competed since 1900. Each year The World Rowing Championship is held by FISA with 22 boat classes. The European Rowing Championships are held along with three World Rowing Cups in which each event earns a number of points for a country towards the World Cup Title.

Since it first originated in Egypt it has changed a little. There were not any Olympics in Egypt so Rowing wasn't in the Olympics, and we now have Rowing in our summer Olympics. Rowing hasn't changed a lot but it has still has changed since then.
