F. Chow Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: Made History as the First Chinese Olympic Rower
“In 2020, I’d love to compete in the women’s singles event in Tokyo. Due to the epidemic, the 2020 Americas Olympic Trials have to be postponed, and no new dates have been set as of yet. In light of the possibility (hope) that there may be hardships early in the new year, I have begun my preparations accordingly “I quote F. Chow:
F. Chow began rowing 25 years ago as a walk-on for her college squad. This year, she earned silver at the Pan American Games in Chile in the women’s single sculls event.
“The 2019 Pan American Games will go down as one of my most memorable experiences. My races there were the closest I’ve gotten to what I aspire for in every race:
to be aggressive and confident but also being executed to the best of my abilities at the time in a way that respects the training and sacrifices I put in to get there. The women’s singles silver medal was a nice bonus “This is what F. Chow stated.
F. Chow acknowledged that the coronavirus epidemic had made life tough for many individuals, but she was thankful for her own circumstances.
F. Chow expressed his gratitude by saying, “I feel happy to have a job mostly unaffected by the pandemic and, since I row in the single, my training has been mostly unaffected as well.”
Chow claims that the pandemic has had no effect on her training because the boathouse where she does so in Redwood City, California has allowed singles throughout.
When asked about the state of rowing in Trinidad and Tobago, Chow conceded there was much to accomplish but that the sport had potential.
