Tokyo Reuters Sea Forest Waterway which will perform host to Olympic rowing events at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Summer Games opened on Sunday with the sport’s world governing body praising managers for delivering a world-class venue on schedule. Fans who want to watch the live-action of Olympic Rowing can get Olympic Rowing Tickets online.
Building workers and passersby are seen through Olympic rings in front of the construction site of the New National Stadium the main stadium of Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo, Japan June 13, 2019.
Olympic Sprint canoeing, as well as Para-rowing and Para-canoeing, will also piece at the newly constructed venue next year. Jean Christophe Rolland International Rowing Federation president himself an Olympic gold medalist from Sydney 2000 was glad the venue was completed on time.
Rolland told reporters. “Everything has been on track on time and I am very pleased more than one year before the Olympic Games to be in such a position without any major issues.”
“There are still some little things to improve but I can say we can be relieved we will have a good course for the Olympic Games.”
The course, which is 2,300 meters long has been constructed on canals in Tokyo Bay and is next to a former landfill site which has been turned into a forest in time for the Games. There are approximately 2,000 seats in a permanent grandstand while unto 16,000 spectators can be accommodated daily during the Olympics with the help of temporary seating and standing areas.
On a sunny but windy day, the conversation rotated around the possibility of wind affecting race conditions on a course with very little natural protection from the elements. Several dozen rowers and canoeists managed to successfully complete a demonstration on Sunday despite the conditions and Rolland said he was unfazed.
“Of course the wind, if it is too strong, might be an issue but this is the fourth time I have come here to Tokyo and this is the first time I have seen it so strong.” said the Frenchman.
“On an eight-day program, I hope we will find time easily where the wind is not too strong and that we can have a good competition.”
Sea Forest Waterway is one of just 8 stable new venues being built for Tokyo summer Games 2020. Building for all the venues is on schedule with the archery venue already being completed and unveiled in April.
