As an optional sport, rowing was on the programme of Summer Universiades three times. It debuted during the 1987 World University Games in Zagreb, Yugoslavia and was also featured at the following Summer Universiade in Duisburg, Germany. And the third occasion was during the 1993 Summer Universiade in Buffalo, USA. Rowing will make its fourth appearance at Kazan 2013.

Rowing in the tsarist Russia, Soviet and Russian periods was and still is an integral part of physical education. Starting with an informal date of rowing’s birth date in Russia - 1860 - and the official date when the All-Russian Union of Rowing Societies (VSGO) was established in 1908, Russian and Soviet athletes have frequently become champions and winners of the Olympic Games, World and European championships. Rowing reached its peak in the Soviet Union in 1982. In the 1980s Soviet athletes were the leaders of the world rowing, competing only with the GDR.

Rowers of the Republic of Tatarstan competed at three Olympic Games. Alexander Plyushkin finished seventh as part of the men’s eight crew at the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games. Lidia Averyanova was the fourth in the women’s eight in 1988. And Alexander Ustinov took the 13th place during the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta.
Lidia Averyanova is the real pride of Kazan rowing. Lydia Averyanova (born on March 4, 1960 in Kazan, Russia) is the seven-times champion of the USSR (1983-1989), the World Champion (1983, 1985, 1986), a participant of the Olympic games in Seoul (4th place) in rowing. In 1984 she was granted the title of Merited Master of Sport.
After the Rowing Centre was opened in Lake Middle Kaban, Kazan, it rapidly became the alternative venue for official national competitions that were normally held in Russia’s top rowing centres – Moscow and Rostov-on-Don.  In summer 2011 Kazan hosted the All-Russian University Rowing Competitions and Russian Rowing Championship (non-Olympic programme). Both tournaments will come again to Kazan in late June, 2012.  More than that, Kazan’s Lake Middle Kaban will also play host to such rowing events as the Russian Youth Championship, World University Championship and Russian President's Cup Rowing Regatta in September.
