Indoor Rowing – “Erging”
Indoor rowing is a great way to keep fit and a gateway to become involved with the sport. Two-time world champion, dual Olympian and Olympic medal winner Chris Morgan (AUBC) began his rowing career when he participated in an ergometer challenge at the Adelaide University Open Week – after winning the challenge (and a case of beer!) he learned to row in one of the start-up programs within the university and went on to represent the country many times over.
You don’t need to be a river rower to participate or pick up the handle! The ergometer is used across so many disciplines and sports, all are welcome to participate. The 2021 Australian Indoor Rowing Championships is a great way to test yourself and set fitness goals. It is set to take place on 30th of October in Adelaide – you can view the event details here.
