Current women’s world record holder starts at indoor rowing competition Alfa 2018 in Tallinn on January 27th. Olena Buryak from Ukraine won the world championchips title last year and is planning to participate at Alfa this year.

„She is in even better form this season, she already broke women’s world record in 2000 m distance, now Buryak is the fastest woman on the rowing machine with 6.22,8,“ Alfa’s organizer Mihkel Klementsov told.

From men’s side last year’s winner Pavel Shurmei from Belarus will be back in Tallinn to defend his title. 41 years old Shurmei is still one of the world’s fastest indoor rowers. „He was 2nd at the world championchips last year as well,“ Klementsov said.

All the best Estonian rowers will participate at Alfa as well.
