In this episode, we speak with research student Phil Harfield. Phil worked with the Great Britain Rowing Team, helping prepare the team for the Olympics and now he’s turned his attention to research in the sport at the Sports Technology Institute. He tells us about how technology has changed rowing and what gains technology and carefully observed and modified biomechanics can unlock. For more information on the sport, Phil recommended High Performance Rowing and World Rowing, the official website of the governing body.
