We are writing on behalf of the GB Rowing Team Start program which is a talent identification programme which was established in 2001 with funding from the Lottery Sports Fund with the aim to build the future of the GB Rowing Team by identifying and developing potential Olympians. In sport there are certain body types that favour different activities. In rowing the methods of moving the boat favours the use of long levers of arms and legs to obtain maximum propulsion. This is why many of the most successful rowers are tall and this is a particular attribute that Start is looking for as well as a combination of strength and endurance for the 6-7 minute event.
