Rowing Australia has been rated as progressing (Olympic) and performing (Paralympic). Rowing Australia did not meet its 2014 world championships gold medal target in Olympic-class boats. While there is some caution around this result, there is evidence that with eight boats finishing in the top five — and four of them with medals — rowing is positioned to achieve its Rio 2016 targets.

The challenge for 2015 is to convert existing medals to gold, and the fourth and fifth placings to medals. There is a watching brief on this for 2015, with Rowing Australia needing to clearly set out the steps it is taking to improve the benchmark event performances of its Olympic-category boats.

In para-rowing events, Australia finished at the top of the world championships medal table for a second successive year, with gold medals in the men’s single sculls and mixed double sculls Paralympic-class boats. The challenge for 2015 is to develop the mixed four as a third medal-potential boat.

After successfully implementing required governance reform, Rowing Australia is working with its member associations on driving governance evolution at the state level. A significant challenge is alignment of data collection across Rowing Australia and its member associations.
