Rowing has been staged at every edition of the Olympic Games, except in 1896 in Athens. It was included on the programme, but a stormy sea compelled the organizers to cancel the events.
Women made their debut at the Games in 1976 in Montreal. They competed in a smaller programme. The Olympic Games in 1996 in Atlanta marked the introduction of the lightweight events.
