Rowing

Rowing is the most recent addition to the Paralympic programme and appeared at the Games for the first time at Beijing 2008. All races are held over a 1,000-metre course and each country is only allowed to enter one boat in each event.

Classification

At London 2012, the programme featured three classes; “LTA” (legs, trunk and arms) “TA” (trunk and arms) and “AS” (arms and shoulders). There are four medal events – two mixed-gender events (coxed four and double-sculls) plus the men’s and women’s single-sculls.

Rowing events at London 2012’s Eton Dornay venue all began with heats, with two boats from each heat qualifying directly for the final. All remaining boats then competed in two “repechages”, which offered a second chance to qualify for the final and row for gold.
