For the first time in ETT history this challenge will be pitting team mates against each other because we have such a diverse range of members from different countries - I have copied the following information from the C2 website:
Represent in the Rowlympics and PaRowlympics!
The Concept2 Rowlympics coincides with the Olympic Games, starting with the Opening Ceremonies on July 27, 2012 and continuing for 17 days until the Closing Ceremonies on August 12, 2012. This special rowing challenge (both indoor and on water meters count) celebrates the spirit and competition of the Games: represent your country by earning virtual medals (gold, silver, bronze) and certificates for the number of hours rowed. Hour totals are cumulative and do not need to be completed in one sitting.
For our adaptive rowers, the PaRowlympics will run for 12 days from August 29 through September 9, 2012.
Certificates will be awarded for the following hours of rowing during the length of the challenge, so make sure you log all your meters in yourOnline Logbook:
C2 will be tracking the number of virtual medals earned by each nation, so rally your fellow countrymen!
Concept2 will provide suggested workouts and commentary to help keep you motivated. Set up your indoor rower near your television to follow your favorite teams at Eton's Dorney Lake! Final races and victory ceremonies will begin August 1, 2012.
