The Tokyo Games in summer 2021: Rowing competitions will cast waves
The Games of 2021 inch closer and we are sure you would want to witness some of the spectacle live. One of the most prestigious sports that goes way back in the tournament’s history is rowing and with tickets for the Tokyo Games in summer 2021: Rowing from StubHub you can be among the crowds cheering on the teams as they slip through the water to the finishing line.
A sport with a backwards win
It is most likely the only sport where the teams come through the finishing line backwards. It is one of the oldest sports but only established its superior status during the past 200 years when the top-notch universities Oxford and Cambridge regularly faced off in rowing competitions – a tradition that stands until today. But the sport is no longer limited to elite universities and the UK, now it is an internationally popular sport that attracts teams from all over the world and an ever-growing audience. What can the audience expect from a rowing event at this multi-sports event? Rowing, unlike canoeing, means the teams sit in the boat backwards and glide through the water with strong strokes. The course to complete is 2000m long and there are two classifications: sculling and sweep events. Sculling means every team member has an oar in each hand, whilst in sweep each team member holds one oar with two hands. There are different races for single persons, doubles, quadruples and even eight-person races. Especially the team rowing demands perfect choreography and high focus from each team member to ensure every movement is the same and rhythmic. Apart from immense physical strength, particularly in the arms, they have to show team spirit. However, keeping track of their energy levels is also pivotal, as they have to save enough energy for a potential fighting finish to the end line. With tickets for the Tokyo Games in summer 2021: Rowing from StubHub you can see their team coordination, rhythm, and skill in real life. And remember it is first come, first served, so make sure to be quick, and re-sell your tickets here if you cannot use them anymore.

Rowing may have been a traditional sport in Great Britain, but other countries are easily catching up. While the British have held a firm grip to defend their title, China, South Africa and many other nations have shown incredible skill in the water in the last tournaments, so it will definitely be a close race.
