London Paralympics: RowingParalympic Rowing, the newest arrival on the Paralympic programme, returns at London 2012 with four medal events held on the spectacular Eton Dorney lake from Friday 31 August to Sunday 2 September. Paralympic Rowing, which made its debut at Beijing in 2008, features two mixed-gender events (the Coxed Four and Double Skulls) plus the men's and women's Single Skulls. In Paralympic Rowing, rather than the sport being adapted to the athlete, the equipment is adapted so the athlete can do his or her best to practice the sport as it would be done normally. All races are held over 1,000m; the Single Skulls events are arms only, where the athlete is strapped into a fixed seat which only allows shoulder and arm movements; the Coxed Four allows the use of at least one leg, trunk and arms, and also allows for those with visual and intellectual impairments; the Double Skulls allows use of trunks and arms in a boat with a fixed seat.
