LT 072 | Drew Ginn - Will it make the boat go faster?

 Subscribe & Review : iTunes | Stitcher

This week my guest is Drew Ginn. Drew Ginn is a legend in the sport of rowing and I am absolutely honored to have had the opportunity to sit down and speak with him. Here is what prompted this interview. I had recently read the book "The Kiwi Pair: The Story Behind Our World-Beating Rowers" by Hamish Bond and Eric Murray. In their book they discuss how they came across a video Drew Ginn had posted on his blog, Rudderfish. The title of the video was "Will it make the boat go faster?" and in it Drew shares some of his thoughts on what he had been taught by coaches and what he felt truly translated into greater boat speed. (I highly encourage you to watch the YouTube video to give you some proper background to this podcast interview).

After watching this video I reached out to Drew personally and asked him if he be gracious enough to be a guest on the podcast.

Here are some of the career accomplishments Drew has achieved in the sport of rowing:
