October 2022 Monthly Challenge - Row, row, row your boat
I'm sure for many of us the thought of rowing conjures up images of fantastic Olympic medal races with athletes pushing themselves to the limit of endurance over the duration of the 2km course. Or maybe it's the quintessentially British University Boat Race or Henley Regatta that springs to mind and evokes memories of sun and sipping Pimm's sitting by the Thames.
What many of us might not know (myself included) is that each year, there is a World Championship Rowing event, including one held just a couple of weeks ago in the Czech Republic.
To celebrate this we bring you our October monthly challenge looking back at the previous 50 editions of the championships with data on the tournaments themselves together with the overall medal table and a medal table for each Championship.
