Rowing (sport)
ROWING, often referred to as CREW in the United States, is a sport whose origins reach back to Ancient Egyptian times. It involves propelling a boat (racing shell ) on water using oars . By pushing against the water with an oar, a force is generated to move the boat. The sport can be either recreational for enjoyment or fitness, or competitive, when athletes race against each other in boats. There are a number of different boat classes in which athletes compete, ranging from an individual shell (called a single scull ) to an eight-person shell with coxswain (called a coxed eight ). Modern rowing as a competitive sport can be traced to the early 10th century when races were held between professional watermen on the River Thames
