Olympic woman's 2k Times

Post by rowinginva » July 17th, 2012, 8:40 am

I've been looking for the 2K times for the US women on the 2012 Olympic team but haven't been able to find them. As a young rower that would like to eventually try out for the team I thought it would be interesting to know what competitive 2K times look like. Does anyone know where I might find these times or might know what kind of times are needed to be competitive when I try out for the 2016 Olympic team?

I haven't seen erg times for Olympic team members published ( men or women). I quick peek at crash-b results show the fastest women in the open class are rowing about a 6:40 or 6:50.

Wr is 6.26 Bit depending on weight top rowers should be within 10/15 seconds of that, even lightweight woman row sub 7. Toprowers seldom do erg races, so it is hard to find erg times on the net. Sometimes test results are show, but mostly those are not made public.

There are plenty of results on line from worlds, and soon from the olympics. You can see the boat types you're interested in. The erg coefficients it's said were designed to correlate with the 4-. Of course afloat we go slow if possible, so you'll have to look for tight races.

If you really want to reach international level, there's nothing can replace time and racing in a 1x.

The time is designed to match 100 kg 4- rowers. Lighter rowers will be faster than the erg time in a 4-, heavier slower (all other things being equal, which they never are).
