Independent rowing news is hard to get sometimes apart from forum comments and bloggers – but professional rowing journalists Rachel Quarrell and Chris Dodd set up Rowing Voice Magazine as an online subscription news source.
Born out of frustration with the ‘party line’, Rowing Voice is now the premier UK news source that gives in depth interviews with International Athletes, covers the world rowing events and also tweets!
Volume 6 issue 2 is out now. It has a great interview with Kath Grainger and Anna Watkins including their reactions to the pressure of being favourites for Olympic Gold and what persuaded Kath to come back after her Silver at Beijing.
Martin Gough has joined the team and his article on Britain’s chances of topping the medals this summer is great reading. Plus the anonymous “Hammer-Smith” reports on the blunders in the recent racing rule change and Sir Steve’s chances with the bookies.
Get yourself a subscription for £20 – it lasts a year and will be particularly valuable in this Olympic year as detail about the rowing events will be hard to find in among the other sports. You can test out the quality buying each issue as it publishes for £3.00 which is pretty good value – and there’s no advertising…. what a refreshing change!
