Hello!

My name is Jordan Rendall. I am passionate about rowing and am currently training towards the goal of representing Canada internationally.

Six years ago, I was first introduced to rowing at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, where I completed Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, respectively. As a member of the rowing team I learned to push my body beyond what my mind believed possible.

Aspirations

In my six years at university, I saw consistent improvement in my rowing abilities which fueled my desire for more. I have won provincial and national medals in the collegiate circuit, and was selected to compete for the Canadian team at the World University Games (FISU) in Gravelines, France, in 2014. I turned my focus to sculling in 2014 and won gold in the senior lightweight men's single at one of North America's largest amateur rowing tournaments (Royal Canadian Henley). This fall I was invited to race as a member of the Canadian national lightweight men's team at the internationally renowned, Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, Massachusetts, earning a gold medal in the 8+.

Having progressed steadily throughout my varsity years and summers as a club rower, I am driven to see what is possible if I dedicate myself to training full time. I have decided to postpone my career with Jordan Engineering Inc. in order to focus on training with the goal of representing Canada as a member of the national rowing team at this year's World Championships on August 21-28, 2016, in Rotterdam, Netherlands; the first giant step towards the ultimate goal of competing at the 2020 summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.

Costs

The costs of training and competing at an international level are many, each week of training involving 2-3 workouts per day. The cost of simply trying out for the team in May is $2000 CAD. The necessary costs incurred to be a strong competitor at these spring trials include gym membership fees, monthly boat rental and rowing club fees, physiotherapy costs, the expense of meeting daily nutritional requirements, and the high cost of travel to attend winter training camps in British Columbia and the US to allow for on-water rowing while Ontario waterways remain ice-covered.

Once selected, further costs include relocation to the national training centre in London, Ontario to train with the team as well as the costs of traveling and competing in Rotterdam, Netherlands at the World Championships.

These costs are in addition to regular every day living expenses. The cost of training towards the goal of competing internationally is often the biggest barrier an athlete has.

Thank you!

Thank you for reading my page! Together, I believe we can achieve success! I will continue to share updates on my training with you and if you have any requests, please feel free to comment or send a personal message. For one-time donations, please follow this link!
