Interview with Fie Udby ERICHSEN

Hearing about the Danish lightweight men's four winning at the 1996 Olympics, 11-year-old Fie Udby Erichsen vowed that she wanted to go to the Olympic Games. Sixteen years later she lined up at the start of the London Olympics women's single sculls final. Eight minutes later she had become an Olympic silver medallist.

Coming from a nation where lightweight rowing dominates, Fie is showing the Danes that their country also has talent amongst the heavyweights. She has remained focused, dedicated and optimistic despite setbacks along the way and for this World Rowing welcomes Fie as the first Athlete of the Month for 2013.

Part I

World Rowing: Where are you at present?
Fie Udby Erichsen:
In Copenhagen, but my plan is to move to another part of Denmark. I have just sold my house and so everything is chaotic. I am going to live back where I grew up as I want to be close to my parents and my husband's parents. I started rowing there (Haubro) and it is a really good place to row (the town is built on a fjord).

WR: Did you move to Copenhagen originally for rowing?
FUE:
Yes, nine years ago, to be near to the national training centre.

WR: What inspired you to start rowing?
FUE:
The gold medal in the lightweight men's four at the 1996 Olympic Games (the first Games that included lightweight rowing). I heard it on the radio and I started (rowing) at school straight away. I was 11 years old. I started because I wanted to go to the Olympics.

WR: You've had a couple of attempts at the Olympics. Tell us about this.
FUE:
Yes, my partner (in the pair) got injured so in 2007 I got a new partner. We were really close (to qualifying for the Olympics at the World Rowing Championships) in 2007 but we missed out by half a second. Then we tried in 2008 (at the Final Olympic Qualification Regatta) and were one place away from qualifying. At that time I decided I never wanted to go to another Final Olympic Qualification Regatta because there's a few happy people and everyone else is devastated. Around the boat park you can feel it; there are so few happy people.

WR: So what made you go through the Final Olympic Qualification Regatta in 2012?
FUE:
In 2010 I suffered a prolapsed disc (back injury) and it got worse and I couldn't row at Karapiro (World Rowing Championships venue). I was out for more than half a year so I decided my place at the 2011 Worlds (which was also the first chance at 2012 Olympic qualification) wasn't my standard. (Fie finished 14th). I hadn't been doing long distance and short distance training, so I knew I had a lot of sprint and endurance training to do.

At the Worlds (2011) the water was bumpy and I had a hard time with my back, but because of my result in Lucerne (World Rowing Cup earlier in the season) where I was eighth, I knew that I could do better. I decided, with my coach, to keep on going. So I did a lot of cross training and bit by bit I could row like I used to. My erg scores started to get better and I was getting back to where I was before. Between the Worlds (2011) and the Olympics I never got sick or needed to take time off.

WR: How did you end up in the single?
FUE:
In 2008 I decided that I wanted to continue for the next four years towards the Olympics and have no regrets. I quit my studies and I started to row as much as I could. I then decided that the single was the best way to go. Three weeks after I decided that I went to the European Championships (2010) and came fourth, so I saw that I had made a good decision.

WR: Have you been in a boat since the Olympics?
FUE:
I went in the Head of the Charles (in October) and the selection races for Denmark for for the national team and the national championships so I've done quite a bit of rowing. But since the start of December there has been ice on the water so I can't go out. But I've done some erg training about twice a week.

WR: And you are now pregnant, so how has your training fitted into your pregnancy?
FUE:
Yes, I'm at 21 weeks. My plan is to feel my body so not to push it too hard. I've worked it out with my physio. I can't pull as hard as I used to. I usually monitor my heart rate but lately it's not much fun seeing it bounce up. I can't monitor my heart the same as I used to, so I've stopped monitoring it as I couldn't see the point.
I hope to continue training right through my pregnancy. I can still swimming and cycle and I'll continue doing core training as much as I can. But I've stopped all weight training because I don't feel that it's useful at present.

WR: Do you use someone as a guide in terms of training while pregnant?
FUE:
I've spoken to Julianne (Rasmussen, see http://www.worldrowing.com/athletes/juliane-rasmussen ) and she told me it wasn't a problem and it felt great the whole time. I just hope everything works out well.

WR: How is this month shaping up?
FUE:
We have to be out of our house by 14 January. We've already moved everything that we want to keep so now I've just got my clothes and things to use before we move.

A rowing app for your needs

It was 2009 when the first rowing-related app came about. It was called "pull together" and was to fit in with British ocean rower Roz Savage's solo row across the Pacific Ocean. The app was designed to challenge people to match Savage's 10,000 oar strokes per day by walking 10,000 steps per day.
Since then a whole range of apps have been designed targeting the avid rower and rowing coach. The top five most popular rowing apps on Android are currently:
  1. Stopwatch for coaches – keeps time on up to four stopwatches at the same time.
  2. Talos Rowing – rowing training app with stroke rate, speed, distance and time.
  3. Rowing BoatCoach – Displays stroke rate, stroke count, distance, speed, time and heart rate.
  4. ergLog – tracks a Concept2 ergometer
  5. Stroke Rate Counter – stroke rate calculator
Apple produces a list by order of rowing "relevance" rather than popularity:
  1. Rowing SPM – rowing strokes per minute counter
  2. Erg Buddy – Concept2 ergometer information.
  3. RowActiv – indoor rowing 'personal trainer'
  4. Speed Coach Mobile Free – on-the-water training tool, giving data on the workout.
  5. Rowing In Motion – Boat Lite – speed, acceleration and stroke rate data.
All of these apps are free.
Apps, or application software, are designed to do a specific task and more recently have been designed specifically for mobile devices.
These apps often carry out one very specific function. For a rower or a coach apps can be useful as they offer a way to carry information in a portable form, on a smartphone.
Rowperfect's Jonathan Lewis notes that taking a laptop out rowing or in a coaching launch is not convenient and could end up getting damaged.
"A phone is much smaller and for the data the rowers look for, has all the processing power they need. If you look at the list of apps above most are simple timers or counters of some description with perhaps a formula or two to show average speed, etc.," says Lewis.
The range of apps also covers rowing areas away from training needs like Sir Steve Redgrave's app (on Apple) of a river adventure game: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/river-adventures/id551978870?mt=8
The list continues to expand.
