The Physician and Sportsmedicine: Rowing Injuries (3115 words)
Rowing athletes train virtually year-round, with emphasis on distance training in the fall, weights and distance in the winter, and increasing intensity and anaerobic work in the spring and summer racing seasons.
In sweep rowing, the back is also twisted slightly during the stroke to achieve more reach in the catch position, which may increase the incidence of back pain (4), though this does not appear to be the case in my experience or that of several US national rowing team physicians.
Rowing is an outdoor sport; thus, rowers should be aware of exposure and safety issues, including sun exposure augmented by reflection from the water and hypothermia augmented by wet clothing.
2004 Summer Olympics - Facts, Information, and Encyclopedia Reference article (2001 words)
It was the first Olympics since NBC had merged with Vivendi Universal Entertainment; the merger, along with the acquisitions of the Bravo and Telemundo networks, made it possible for the network to broadcast over 1200 hours of coverage during the games, triple what was broadcast in the U.S. four years earlier.
The main Olympic Stadium, the designated facility for the opening and closing ceremonies, was completed only two months before the games opened, with the sliding over of a futuristic glass roof designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.
The Mayor of Athens, Dora Bakoyianni, passed the Olympic Flag to the Mayor of Beijing, Wang Qishan.
