Peter Mallory’s "Evolution Of The Rowing Stroke"

Yesterday on Row2k, renowned rowing historian Peter Mallory published yet another installment of his gigantic work Rowing and Sculling: The Comprehensive History (work title).

Mallory, who has done a tremendous work, writes: “The book has grown to three volumes and will cover the worldwide evolution of rowing technique since rowing as a sport was invented at Eton College during the late 18th Century. By now I have collaborated with several hundred people around the world and traveled more than 50,000 miles over five years to do my research. I have amassed perhaps the largest digital video collection in the world, read hundreds of books and recorded hundreds of hours of oral history.”

The latest part is about the American Olympian Conn Findlay (see picture, which I borrowed from The Rowing Hall of Fame web site). To read Peter Mallory’s article on Row2k, please click here.
