Pararo Birgit Skarstein improved her own world record in indoor rowing during the WC on Tuesday.
Skarstein rowed in the time 8.18.5 in the distance 2000 meters in the final and secured the World Cup gold.
Skarstein rowed directly against his competitors online and could always see how the rivals were doing.
The Norwegian sports profile rowed his World Cup distance in Leira Storhall in Valdres. She is currently at a training session at Beitostølen.
In the opening heat, Birgit and Israeli Moran Samuel were only two seconds apart. Before the final, an exciting duel was therefore expected.
– It was very fun and absolutely cruel. It was so painful after the race. In indoor rowing, raw power is used more than water. It is important to manage the race well. In the experiment, I went a little too hard and got it towards the end, Skarstein told NTB.
– In the final I had a better race plan. This is more of a test of how the physical form is.
Skarstein beat Israeli Samuel by seven seconds in the final.
The race was the distance 2000 meters which is also the distance that is rowed in the Olympics.
The sports profile from Levanger is preparing for this summer’s vulnerable Paralympics in Tokyo.
She will travel to Italy in a couple of weeks to row on the water as well.
