Row17 Blog

Renee has been a part of the rowing community as an athlete and instructor since 2012. Her infatuation with the sport of rowing was instant and within her first year worked her way onto Team Alberta for the 2013 Canada Summer Games. Now competing at the collegiate level she continues to find success placing top six during the 2014 Canadian University Championships.

Studying Kinesiology (the study of human movement) at the University of Calgary Renee continues to lean and apply her knowledge to her passion of rowing.

Why Row17?

I find that nothing compares to being on the water but Row17 has found a way to capture that feeling (and sound!) to share with Calgary. I couldn’t miss being a part of the team that is bringing what I love to this city.
