Biographies, Exclusive Analysis, and Results

Here are the Olympic and World Championship biographies of rowers and coxswains in the Athens 2004 Olympic games rowing competition.

WorldRowers.com uses the proprietary JAMCO international rowers database to present the Olympic and World Championship biographies of those rowers who have been identified as of identified as of August 10, 2004. Boating changes announced after that date will be added as we learn about them. The data is arranged by event. For each year they competed in the Olympics or World Championships, that year is shown, followed by the event they were in and where they placed, e.g., 2002 8+ 4th.

JAMCO Pre-Race Analyses are based on an analysis of race data plus over 40 years of experience in competitive rowing, including Olympic competition.

Color Coding For Race Results Re-Created by JAMCO

Race result reports produced by JAMCO from reported Olympic racing times depict crews at each 500 meter interval, using graphics and color conventions to show position and relative movement of the individual crews in each interval of the race.

Movements by crews during each 500 meter interval are highlighted by different colors. Gold (yellow) crews are closing on the leader in the current 500. Silver (light blue) crews are closing on the second place crew, but falling further behind the leader. Bronze (orange) crews are closing on the third place crew, but falling further behind the leader and the second place crews. White
crews are falling further behind all three leading crews. Quite often, when a crew turns gold, it takes the lead in the next 500.
