It is a very nice course.

Technique and good hard training!

We row on a lake which is 3km long with a 1.6km straightish section in it. We have around 20 boats in total and 6 ergos as well as access to weights.

17.What’s your message for all the Asian countries competing here in Chungju?

Next year Myanmar is hosting the South East Asia Games so please everyone come!!
