  • Description

    Full titles read: "Seeing themselves as others see them! - U.S. 'Varsity Boat Race Crews use novel mirror device to aid them in their training."

    Princeton, New Jersey, United States of America (USA).

    M/S shows three Princeton University rowing teams of bare-chested men, practising in a boathouse (i.e. on dry land!) and watching their movements in a long mirror in front of them. Their coach walks up and down, correcting their movements and pointing out errors in the mirror. M/S from in front of the men. Another shot from behind shows them going through the rowing movements without holding onto the oars. The men also exercise with barbells in a rowing movement.
