The European Rowing Championships will return to Lucerne in Switzerland this summer for the first time in 72 years. The 2022 championships in Munich, Germany will serve as a reliable indicator as to which European outfits are building momentum ahead of their trip to Japan next year. Lucerne last held the European Rowing Championships in 1947 and will hope to lay an extravaganza featuring some of the best talent in the world upon its return.
Preview and Favourites
Greece remain the all-time medal table leaders in the European Rowing Championships, but they haven’t finished atop an individual tournament table since 2011.
Great Britain were hosts last year but could only muster two silvers and two bronzes to finish 12th overall, their worst performance in a competition since 2011 when they took a sole silver (they didn’t participate in 2013).
Last year, Romanian duo Madalina Beres and Denisa Tilvescu struck gold in this event before their country went on to top the medal table for the first time in their history. Beres was paired with Laura Oprea when they also won gold in 2017, and Romania have never failed to finish without a medal in this event since the competition was relaunched in 2007 (eight golds, one silver, three bronzes).
Italy finished third last year after finishing with eight medals in 2017 when they topped the table, but they could be a value bet to bounce back in furious fashion 12 months on.
The 2022 European Rowing Championships will take place between 11. Aug 2022 – 14 Aug. 2022.
However, fans and athletes alike will be getting in the spirit of competitions as early as Thursday, 10th of August, when the opening ceremony is scheduled to signal the Championships’ arrival at 6 p.m. GMT. The first medals of the showcase won’t be distributed until Saturday, Aug 13th in the women’s pairs. You can check out the competition’s official provisional programme at WorldRowing.com to see the schedule outline.
