Rowing Ireland are delighted to announce a new partnership with WHOOP, the human performance company. In support of the pathway towards the Paris 2024 Olympics, WHOOP are supplying their bands and subscriptions to the High Performance athletes to help further their potential.

WHOOP is an American based company that strives to unlock athletes’ human performance. Tracking Sleep, Recovery and Strain, the WHOOP bands are the perfect complement to athletes, helping them to enhance their performance by gathering and examining the data that usually gets looked over.

Rowing Ireland’s CEO, Michelle Carpenter has said: “Today is an exciting day, as we build towards Paris 2024. We are delighted to reveal WHOOP as an official supplier to Rowing Ireland. Their support of our athletes and coaches is hugely significant and we thank the team at WHOOP for their commitment to our journey. We look forward to working together to support our athletes’ journeys.”

Ronan Jones, European Marketing Manager at WHOOP said of the partnership; “We’re thrilled to be working with Rowing Ireland in the lead up to the 2024 Olympic Games. WHOOP offers data insights, behavioral analysis and powerful coaching; which makes it an essential training tool for teams. We look forward to seeing what we can achieve together.”

Rowing Ireland athlete representative Tara Hanlon said “We have seen the benefits that Whoop can bring to the team as some of the athletes already have been using the insights and analysis. It is amazing to be able to work with this exciting technology to get a better understanding of our recovery and sleep patterns to enable us to reach the highest potential in every session”

Rowing Ireland and athlete representative Fintan McCarthy said “Having been using whoop in the lead up to Tokyo its taken the guess work out of training and recovery. It is great to see the whole team getting on board with it to optimise our preparations for the rest of the season and beyond”!
