7. There's always someone to look after you on nights out because they have a drinking ban every other week.


8. And they're mad strong which means they can carry you home.

9. But when they're not in training, they can put it away with the best of them.

You don't know the meaning of "holding your drink" until you see a women's VIII complete a JΓ€germeister boat race.

Getting hot and sweaty is what they do.

11. And side from gymnasts, they're the most flexible sports people you're going to find – WHICH COMES IN HANDY, WINK WINK.

Being bent over in a boat for hours every day does have an effect.

Oar not.

16. They've got arses you could crack eggs on.

They squat on land. They squat on water. They squat in their sleep.
