Denmark win Nordic Cup 2022

While big parts of continental Europe had record high temperature, low temperature and heavy day rain Saturday and strong headwind Sunday was not the most optimal conditions for a summer regatta. However, all participating rowing teams conquered the elements smoothly and the 2022 Open Nordic Rowing Championship in Tampere Finland became a successful regatta. A big complement to the Finnish Organizers for setting the frame for fairness and inter-nordic friendship between the rowers.

The Nordic Cup which is an ongoing competition among the Nordic Federations was this time won by Denmark with Norway as runners up followed by Sweden and Finland.

It was a perfect Coastal day in Helsingborg, Sweden. The strong northwesterly wind Friday coming from the open sea had during the night moved to a more calm southwesterly direction making it possible for all boats to succesfully conquer the waves. No rain and a mix of sun and clouds with temperature in the low 20’s and the scene was set for the first Open Nordic Coastal Championship.

The new Nordic Coastal Champions:

Coastal rowing in – Lightweight boats out?

At the FISA 2020 Extraordinary Congress it was decided to forward a new Olympic event programme proposal for the IOC Executive Board for the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

On 10 June 2020 the IOC Executive Board (EB) agreed to maintain the previously set deadline of December 2020 to confirm the event programme and athlete quotas for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

The programme proposal has been adopted to comply with the IOC EB decision that underlined the decision should be based on the following previously established key principles:

•Reducing the overall athlete quota (including for all new sports) to 10,500;

•Achieving gender equal participation across the Olympic Games at event and discipline level where possible;

• Prioritising new events that accommodate athletes within the sport’s existing quota allocation; and

• Using existing venue for any proposed new events

The Council has taken careful note of the position of the IOC on separate weight categories for sports that do not involve combat or weightlifting. The Council believes that CoastalRowing adds value for the sport -increases diversity, expands the number of countries that can participate, adds value to the Games-Youth Appeal and innovative TV programming as well as meets and will surpass all the criteria sought by the IOC EB. Therefore, the Council proposes that the Olympic rowing programme for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games should consist of the following classes:

MenWomenMixed Gender
Single ScullsSingle ScullsCoastal Rowing Double Sculls
Double ScullsDouble ScullsCoastal Rowing Solo
Quadruple ScullsQuadruple ScullsCoastal Rowing Solo
PairPair
FourFour
EightEight

This means that Lightweight boats will disappear from the Olympic event programme and Coastal boat will be introduced.
