Inspired by the olympics, I want to take up rowing. I want to win in 2016 Olympics. Finns don't have many decent athletes out there and I think I could do well for my country.
There are couple of rowing clubs in Leeds. One big one that doesnt take on any beginners and another one that is aimed for kids and university students.
What the hell can I do? Buy a rowing machine and practise whilst watching Judge Judy?
I'm talking about becoming an elite here. Some of those British female gold medallist didnt take up rowing until in their thirties.
I've rowed before. Not seriously but I've rowed a fair few times. So I'm not a beginner... but I am in the way that I've never done it as a sport.
I think I'd be amazing. You could all watch me in 2016 and say I KNOW THAT CRAZY FINNISH LADY...
So... if anyone knows... how do I get to the rowing sport?
