Rowing is a form of boat racing, competed either individually or in teams of upto eight. The sport was introduced to the Asian Games in 1982 in the New Delhi Games.
The most typical types are sweep or sweep-oar rowing. This is when each rower has one oar, held with both hands. This form racing involves another team member who steers the boat. They are called coxswain. A race which includes a coxswain is called a coxed race whereas the one without is known as coxless.
The other form of race is known as sculling where each rower has two oars, one in each hand. The major difference between the two is that sculling is done by teams of only upto four.
Rowing of the Hangzhou Asian Games will be held at Fuyang Water Sports Centre from September 20 to September 25, and the athletes will compete for 14 gold medals.
