This year, due to the health crisis, the French indoor rowing championships will be fully connected. The French Rowing Federation has put the means to promote it: a connected rower, wi-fi and a camera are used by athletes in a clip. The key word is adaptation. This time, everything must be done remotely by interposed screen.
Among the 2,600 competitors, there are members of the French team as rowers in their living room. Clélia Edouard, sports coach, takes advantage of this rare competition authorized in times of Covid-19, even if she usually prefers to run. “Running, normally, there are no official races. There, it fell perfectly well, to be able to do that from a distance, to test myself”, she confides. About a hundred titles were awarded over the weekend of January 30 to 31.
