Truly, Australians live by water and on water.
However, amongst these adventerous and glamorous sports there is one that doesn't attract international tourists, though it's a lifestyle choice for many young Australians, school and university students mostly. This sport is rowing. Rowing requires a lot of strength, skills and stamina. Every summer Australian rivers become flooded with boats pushed by crews of five, nine or by the effort of just one rower determined this year to take the prized cup or a golden oar.
The sport is rarely assossiated with adventure or danger but don't try to tell that to the rowers on the Paramatta river. There, it is both adventures and dangerous. The boats are known to be attacked by sharks that find their way from Sydney Harbour into the river. On a couple of occasions the boats were overlooked and 'attacked' by ferries with at least one recorded near miss.
Despite this multitude of sports, Australians have learned to share the resources available to them. The watersports exist together in relative harmony along the nation's beaches and waterways. The sportsmen have great esteem for other players as they all share a common bond with the water.
