Description or Abstract

This audio piece expresses the idea of how a sport like rowing is so addictive and impactful beyond the athletic perspective. Egyptian athletes will put a light on the beauty of Egypt in the morning and how some things in the country are not felt by many people except rowers. This audio feature is about Rowing in Egypt by focusing on both the national team and AUC rowing team. I interviewed Salma Mustafa whom a national team player. In addition to Mohamed Arafa, who was a Rower for 15 years and works in the athletic office in AUC. The music I used in the project is called Btmeyl by Mohamed Basheer and two Royal free music called fearless and inspiration.
