Olympic champion in kayaking
- Rowing on simulators is very different from rowing on water. The athlete uses completely different muscles.
On the simulator, he can not roll over and fall into the water. But, as in water, we need an excellent technique, proper body positioning and weight distribution. Our Winter Cup is a way for professional athletes to keep fit in the winter, and for beginner athletes to get acquainted with the sports community.
Winners are waiting awards and cash prizes. You can register for the competition on the
official website of the
