Olympic training centre and rowing boarding school Ratzeburg: Structures and objectives.

Marc Swienty's talk on the Olympic training centre and rowing boarding school Ratzeburg: Structures and objectives.’ 

At first glance, this looked like something right out of the cold war. However, the 'school' aims to provide a high performance atmosphere that combines education and sport. In Europe, "Schools that Row" are rare, unlike in Great Britain. Hence the novelty of a school offering a rowing and education focus. The school offers full-time boarding while the academy provides everything young rowers need to succeed. 

The Olympic Training Centre and rowing boarding school:

- Training at a high performance centre. 

- Studying at nearby schools. 

Marc Swienty's talk highlighted that London 2012's Olympic champions: Lauritz Schoof (men's quad) and Florian Mennigen (men's eight) were part of the academy.
