Show Notes

In this episode, Lachlan and Ken discuss the moment of connection. The moment of connection is the point when the rower starts driving the boat forward and is an essential component of "The catch". This part of the stroke is over quickly and is done very well by elite crews and very poorly by novice crews. When racing the moment of connection often decides the podium.
