Balmain Rowing Club's insight:

Has much really changed? The rowing season is short, there are more men's crews than women's, there's still more to do to spread the sport across nations and continents. Will the new president of the IOC make a difference to the third-biggest Olympic sport? Martin Cross thinks pressure will come from above, not below.

Real success drives women's coverage

Real success drives women's coverage | Tiger Oars: Rowing News and Views | Scoop.it

Here in the shallow end, we are often accused of treating women, and women's sport, with less regard than their male counterparts. Some pressure groups even run a ruler over the sports section, claiming the disparity between the amount of men's and women's sport exposes a chauvinistic agenda.
