It is that time of year when the World Rowing racing season kicks off with the first event of the season, the 2019 World Rowing Cup I

This takes place in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, which hosted the 2018 World Rowing Championships. There are over 300 athletes racing from 24 countries. A mixture of emerging talent and seasoned elite rowers will be racing with the youngest athlete only 16 years old and the oldest is 50!

With the absence of larger nations such as Great Britain, Germany, France and Italy, this leaves a bigger chance for other nations to make a stance for themselves. China, Romania and Japan have all sent large teams.

The LIVE draw will be taking place at 15:00 EEST (GMT+3) on Thursday, 9 May and will be live streamed on Facebook. The first race will start Friday, 10 May at 09:30 EEST (GMT+3).
