New women's rowing event tabled for Olympics
A new women's event could be added to the Olympic rowing programme under proposals being considered by the sport's governing body this weekend.
With FISA hoping to encourage more women to participate in rowing, delegates will discuss whether to introduce the women's lightweight single sculls to the Olympics.
There are currently six women's events in an Olympic programme compared to eight for the men.
FISA will vote on the proposal at its congress on Sunday. If accepted, the change to the programme would be only possible with the approval of the International Olympic Committee.
Another proposal is the reintroduction of the women's four event in the world championships.
