The World Rowing Junior Championships is an annual international rowing regatta organised by FISA (the International Rowing Federation). For more information on FISA please visit the World Rowing website.
The first FISA Youth Regatta was held in 1967 and has been held every year since then, being raised to the status of FISA Junior Championships in 1970 and Junior World Championships in 1985. Initially only for men, women were included eight years later following on the heels of women’s rowing being added to the Olympic Games in 1976.
The GBR Organising Committee are delighted to be hosting the 2011 World Rowing Junior Championships & look forward to welcoming all the competitors, spectators, officials and guests to Dorney Lake, near Eton.
Traditionally about 50 nations take part in the championships with around 600 juniors competing. A rower or coxswain shall be classified as a Junior until the 31st December of the year in which they reach the age of 18.
The World Rowing Junior Championships see the launch of a number of future stars. Looking back over the results of previous championships, we see the names of many athletes who later went on to achieve Olympic and other senior championship successes.
The event is very special for all lovers of the sport of rowing, but particularly for the participants - whether it being a stepping stone on to greater things or the pinnacle of their rowing achievements.
