The grammar in that title is killing me

You're asking if a rower has stronger legs than a weightlifter???!
prithviraj basumallik
Pete reed with his 11l lung capacity 😅

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.

Do a sweep rower

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.
sk vlogs
They are so hard worker
Ben Dover
just came to the video to say the title should "do they have the strongest legs of any Olympic athlete"
sophia chong

Dom Forte
I’ve been waiting for so long for this video to come out.
Tristan Engeler
What an incredible beast!

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.

If you're going to compare VO2max between athlete classes it would make sense to compare in relative terms.....

"you have to bite through it"... I've got a 2K TT on the erg coming up soon. 😁 I will bite.
Memelord
Rowers represent 💪🏼
Bart Thompson
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.
Fla rai
Woww! Very impressive! But is he born with these capacity? or did he got theme by praticing rowing ?
DognamedEdar
Um.. tbh imo 60% are legs, 30% body and 10% arms
Rokas S
At least now I know I don’t need grammar if I want to become an olympian.
Htoo Htet Aung
They changed the title!yay!
Joey Simon
as a high school rower, I can confirm that towers are indeed the strongest athletes
Teddy Bear
Weightlifters have the strongest legs not these puny humans
poofish gaming
I’m sorry but track sprint cyclists????
Sam Towell
Giving V02 max in ml/kg/min would allow better comparison to other athletes than l/min
chadams96
To answer your question, no.
Alex L
I mean techincally he's a sculler not a rower...
janlukicman
Croatia is proud of him!!!
timeOD
does they have the strongest legs? Or doesn't they??????
Matej Skrobot
Bravo Damir :)
Joel Henderson
So, I haven't watched the video yet, but let me answer this for you: no, they don't.

Lactic acid accumulation is a myth. Lactate tests measure lactate clearance, not lactic acid.
Adriano Melai
It would be very interesting to test a top-level Crossfit athlete. :)
KIERAN GRAHAM
They should test the real regatta sport flat water paddling
Rubber Soul
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!
OJSeph
Do Rowers have the strongest legs of all Olympic Athletes? No, no they don't, did you seriously think they would be stronger than Olympic WEIGHTLIFTERS
Konstantinos Makridis
Weightlifters and most throwers have stronger legs
Julio Blanco
They are only comparing sports with easily measured metrics. Wrestlers exert more energy I would guess, just no way to measure it.
JEatoaol
No, Oly weightlifters do...
Scott Anderson
The strongest Olympic athlete is the humble gorilla
fg
I find this series interesting, but why aren't they showing the exact same data for all athletes? With the weightlifter Dmitry they showed the torque on the dyno for his quads and here they show it for the hamstrings.
vkovacevix
I know that head shaking on the erg when i see it
Wesley Alth

Chesus Crest
They should try track cyclists if they're talking legs....
idsavo
Strong differs from durable. Weighlifting demands the strongest legs.
Yani Schrödinger
You should test velodrome cyclists
Radio Station
Definitely not saying this dude isn’t crazy fit, but I’d like to see some cyclists/runners do this type of thing. (Maybe not their arms, but anaerobic capacity and such)
Dan
Racing kayaking?
Daniel Price
Have you seen Olympic sprint cyclists or are the thighs of a rower even bigger than that of a cycle sprint Olympian
Mister Molotov
What a great video, i am impressed of his physics and the effort of producing this video.
Konstantinos Makridis

Saludos a los exremeros como yo y mucho ánimo y perseverancia a los que se encuentran en activo y a las futuras generaciones .... Desde España, VIVA EL REMO🎖🏆🏅
akash nair
I would think weightlifters or sprint cyclists would have stronger or more powerful legs compared to other athletes..
