After over 1000 votes, cardiovascular and muscle endurance are clearly the two physical attributes that are considered most important for rowers.

Many people have commented that they wished they could choose more than one option. I think the poll has had the desired effect of making people think about what the demands of sports are. Below is an interesting selection of the comments from voters in the poll, showing the high knowledge level of the visitors to this site. If you have something to add, you can post a comment below.
