Paralympic rowers complete on a six-lane, straight-line course divided by marker buoys. The race is won when the bow of the leading boat crosses the finish line. Rowing made its Paralympic debut in 2008 in Beijing, with events contested over 1,000 metres.
In 2017, the distance was extended to 2,000 metres, meaning that for Tokyo 2020, the Paralympic race distance will be identical to the Olympic distance. Read more on the Tokyo 2020 website.
