Propably weigthlifters have the strongest legs of any olympic athlete lol
Ben Dover

Josh Dunkley Smith of Australia had a VO2 intake of 7.5litres I think. No wonder he holds the world record for the 2k on a rower.
Dom Forte
I’ve been waiting for so long for this video to come out.

You're asking if a rower has stronger legs than a weightlifter???!
Tristan Engeler
What an incredible beast!
Rokas S
At least now I know I don’t need grammar if I want to become an olympian.
Poppy Sandal
Rowers--do they have the strongest legs of any Olympic athlete? -are u joking? Obviously Olympic weight lifters have stronger legs--it's in the job description.

If you're going to compare VO2max between athlete classes it would make sense to compare in relative terms.....
Joey Simon
as a high school rower, I can confirm that towers are indeed the strongest athletes
Angie Angie
The way that woman said damir martin lmaoo
Fla rai
Woww! Very impressive! But is he born with these capacity? or did he got theme by praticing rowing ?
chadams96
To answer your question, no.

I’m sorry but track sprint cyclists????

Rowers represent 💪🏼

Hey Olympic channel, change the caption to say "two-time Olympic Silver medalist..." Damir won silver in the quad (4x) in 2012 and the single (1x) in 2016, but saying "double Olympic Silver medalist" makes it sound like he won in the doubles (2x) event.
Joel Henderson
So, I haven't watched the video yet, but let me answer this for you: no, they don't.
timeOD
does they have the strongest legs? Or doesn't they??????

comparing absolute VO2max between people of different sizes and doing different exercises??? How is that a scientific comparison??? Oxygen consumption is greatly influenced by body mass and test protocol. An elite marathon runner is smaller than elite rower, and running does not involved using the upper body much like rowing would, thus of course a runner is going to have a lower oxygen consumption rate. The way this video is made, it makes it sounds like an elite rower such as this guy can dominate an elite runner based on all these fuzzy and incredible runners. The truth is, as elite as this rower is, he is not going to be able to keep up with an elite marathoner for anything more than the first couple miles. Marathon at the elite level is the ultimate test of endurance and intensity and body durability. Not even Tour de France elite climbers can hope to keep up with an elite marathoner, much less a rower.

They changed the title!yay!

Lactic acid accumulation is a myth. Lactate tests measure lactate clearance, not lactic acid.
Teddy Bear
Weightlifters have the strongest legs not these puny humans

Rowing is the sport of getting in the way of sprint canoeists half way through an interval.

I would think weightlifters or sprint cyclists would have stronger or more powerful legs compared to other athletes..

Als Ex-Rennruderer habe ich das Rennen in Rio natürlich gesehen, der Zielfotoentscheid überzeugt mich bis heute nicht. In Rio waren so viele technischen Dinge definitiv nicht auf olympischen Niveau. Ich habe Damir Martin auf der Ziellinie vorne gesehen, für mich ist er der Olympia-Sieger im Einer!

They does.

Giving V02 max in ml/kg/min would allow better comparison to other athletes than l/min
