Video of the Week: What makes an Olympic rower, 1948

This week’s VOTW is a continuation of the one I posted two weeks ago and is about the state of Olympic rowing post-WW2 (click that link to go watch it – sorry, WordPress is really limited in what videos you can and can’t embed).

This one features an interview with a “rower” who talks about the competitors at the 1948 London games (Germany and Japan being understandably absent), the training regime for athletes just returning home from war, what his daily schedule was like, and what it was like trying to maintain an athlete’s diet when so much food was still being rationed.
