Today’s guest is the director of one of our newest sports, Indoor Rowing. Irene Lysenko says she fell in love with rowing while living in Connecticut some fifteen years ago. What was supposed to be rehab for an injured knee and a recreational pastime quickly turned into a six-day-a-week training schedule with competitions up and down the East Coast. Irene joined Great Salt Lake Rowing nine years ago when she moved to Utah. As much as she has enjoyed competing, she finds her greatest joy comes from teaching and coaching and watching others fall in love with the sport. The Huntsman World Senior Games will be offering Indoor Rowing for the first time ever in 2021.
In addition, Kyle and Lil give some insight into one of the original sports at the Games, basketball.
