World Indoor Rowing Championships

The 35th World Indoor Rowing Championship, hosted by the CRASH-B Sprints, took place on February 28, 2016, at the Agganis Arena in Boston. Nearly 2,500 entrants from over 30 countries raced over the 2000m distance, with five world records being set, including one by 95-year-old Stephen Richardson.

We broadcast the entire championship live on the internet, which is still available to watch. We also have full results and race replays.
