The U.S. hosts the world rowing championships for the first time since 1994, live on NBC Sports next week.
NBCSN, Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA and the NBC Sports app will combine to air daily coverage of the semifinals and finals starting Thursday in Sarasota, Fla.
All NBCSN and Olympic Channel coverage will stream on NBCSports.com/live and the NBC Sports app.
The U.S. earned two medals in Rio. Its dominant women’s eight took its third straight Olympic title. A new-look boat eyes a ninth straight world championships gold medal (heats Tuesday, final Oct. 1).
Three of the nine women return from Rio, led by coxswain Katelin Guregian. Five others are taking the year off or have retired. The last, Amanda Elmore, is out due to injury.
The U.S. put a priority on other women’s boats as it begins ramping up for Tokyo 2020.
