Rotterdam focuses on rowing
On the last day in July, Roffa and the hosts in Rotterdam said goodbye to the teams which took part in rugby and tennis, after yesterday’s finals at the European Universities Games. At the same time, teams participating in sports which will be starting in the next days, mainly basketball, football and volleyball are arriving. They are able to meet the mascot of the event and check out the exhibition on university sport in Europe at their arrival.
The competitions in rowing are ongoing and are taking place at the Willem-Alexander baan, the newly refurbished rowing course situated in the water catchment reserve “Eendragtspolder” as part of the recreational zones of the Rottemeren. Over 300 student athletes are taking part in rowing competitions. Tomorrow, the finals in rowing will take place.
