Weve been following some of the developments as Twitter gains traction in the rowing world.
Learning more about the top end of the sport by reading what international athletes are writing can give great insight into their training regimes. It can also tell you about their normal life activities which is interesting because its the stuff that never gets written up in print magazines.
