What is and what was the rowing championship in 2018
The World Contest 2018 is considered to be a very bright event in the world of sports in general. It took place on the regatta track in the wonderful country of Bulgaria. The event lasted a week, it was held in mid-September – excellent dates and weather conditions during this period of the year allow this contest to be hosted without any difficulties. As for the categories of these competitions, various groups of participants were represented at the championship – para-sport, open and light classes among women and men – there were quite a lot of groups and athletes. What is para rowing alone worth: this type of rowing is considered the youngest in this sport, it was started to develop only in 2006 and it was immediately presented at the Paralympic Games. Para sport is also called adaptive rowing, as athletes are provided with adaptive equipment to perform all the necessary movements.
Prior to this 2018 Championship, Bulgaria also had the honor of hosting the Junior Championships in the last year of the 20th century and in 2012 of the 21st century, as well as another sport tournament in 2011.
Why is the 2018 contest so remarkable?
It was in these competitions that for the first time in the history of rowing, the number of competitions and the number of male and female athletes were the same, which symbolized gender equality and was presented as one important demonstrative step towards a conscious future and society. This decision was taken a year earlier at a meeting of the main governing body for rowing for the global contests.
What problems were there considering the host of the 2018 championship
Long before the competition is usually decided where and how they will be held. Regarding the 2018 event, this process began 5 years earlier, in 2013, when the acceptance of applications for the competition began. The first to apply was the state of Florida, where they were eager to host the event. The same year, the Rowing Federation Evaluation Commission came to the state, and after a couple of months they also visited Bulgaria with the same purpose. Bulgaria attracted more evaluators, since the sport event was already hosted there in 2012, but one thing stopped them – the stage of preparing all the necessary documentation was not completed. It is for this reason the commission made such a decision in 2017 that the Global Rowing Tournament will be hosted in the state of Florida, and if the necessary documents are corrected and the deadlines are met, Bulgaria will be honored to receive sportsmen and fans in 2018.
