Brown, Christopher A.
This report surveys lightweight woman rowing coaches to determine whether they have realistic opinions about the limits of a woman's body in the context of becoming a lightweight rower. The information gathered was compared with literature from the medical community on the same subjects. The coaches' replies were also compared with one another to get a general feel for how coaches interact with their athletes. It was found that the coaches had a generally good perception of the limits of a woman's body, but could benefit from extra education in some areas.
