Using the rowing stroke-watch SEIKO S141 to record the time and 10 stroke rates in each 500 meters split of the lightweight men's double sculls on water 2000 meters test competition, and calculate the average boat speed, stroke rate and distance per stroke in each 500 meters split. The results show that: the boat speed of each 500 meters split was descending gradually; the stroke rate changed reversely compared to distance per stroke in each 500 meters split; the boat speed of the last 500 meters split did not ascend following the ascending of the stroke rate; the average stroke rate of our athletes was significantly lower than the average stroke rate of the world’s elite athletes during the whole 2000 meters.
