After Alexandria, Virginia in 2018 and Long Beach, California in 2019, the World Rowing Indoor Championships (WRICH) are coming to Paris to the World Class Pierre de Coubertin Stadium.The 2020 WRICH is the first time the event will be hosted in Europe. 

With their experience of hosting a premier annual Indoor Rowing event – the French Rowing Indoor Championships, French Rowing Federation was chosen by FISA to organise the 2020 WRICH. Registration is open to all.

Some interesting facts about the event:


The words of FISA’s president, Jean-Christophe Rolland :  
« We held the first two championships in the United States in full cooperation with Concept2. Concept2 not only supply the hardware and technology for such an event, they also support participation of international rowers and also actually help run it. Now it is the moment to move the event outside of the United States. Paris and the French Rowing Federation proved to be fully ready to host the championships and we have already seen a huge amount of interest generated since we first made the announcement. We know that Paris is the right choice. »  

The words of Concept2’s founder, Peter Dreissigacker :
« After the success of Long Beach, we're already looking forward to Paris. The French Rowing Federation has always put on a great indoor rowing event and with the support of World Rowing we're sure they can continue to move the event forward.  Taking the race over to Europe will help showcase what an international sport this is." The World Rowing Indoor Championship racing will take place in open and lightweight categories as well as junior, under-23, para and masters categories. »
