showcase sports

In this category the Urban Games presents to you some of the newest, most exciting urban sports you may never have heard of. We have invited the some of the best from around the world in indoor rowing and in laser run to showcase the essence of these new sports of the Urban Games.

#INDOORROWING

The history of this sport goes back to the 4th century when the Greeks used a wooden-framed simulation of rowing in their military training. Then in 1872 the first indoor rowing machine was patented. This was designed to help on-water rowing athletes stay fit when they could not row on the water.

#INDOORROWING

The indoor rowing machine, also known as the ergometer has grown from a training tool for on-water rowers to a competitive discipline in its own right. National indoor rowing competitions are held all over the world, and in 2018 the World Rowing Indoor Championships was held for the first time. There are also clubs exclusively for indoor rowers and many virtual competitions that allow rowers from around the world to test themselves internationally. Indoor rowing requires strength, power, stamina, and resilience, and can be performed almost anywhere and at any time.
