Rowing (sport) Sport where individuals or teams row boats by oar

Rowing, sometimes referred to as crew in the United States, is a sport whose origins reach back to Ancient Egyptian times. It involves propelling a boat on water using oars. By pushing against the water with an oar, a force is generated to move the boat. The sport can be either recreational for enjoyment or fitness, or competitive, when athletes race against each other in boats. There are a number of different boat classes in which athletes compete, ranging from an individual shell to an eight-person shell with a coxswain.

The men's coxless four competition at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro was held from 8 to 12 August at the Lagoon Rodrigo de Freitas.
