Gymnastic & Coordination Training

International Cooperation

On Monday, Olaf let me come along for his gymnastics and coordination training. His coach, Morten BrĂ¥ten, is a former all-round gymnast who now works with many of Norway’s top Olympians.

It was the hardest core strength sessions I have ever done. My abs are still sore four days later. I did my best at all the exercises, but I could manage about half of what Olaf could do.

Olaf started working with Morten in the lead up to the Beijing games to improve his core strength. I was impressed by what Olaf could do, he has the strongest core of any rower I’ve ever seen.
