Rowing was first used as a means of transport in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. As a sport, it probably began in England in the 17th and early 18th centuries, with the Oxford-Cambridge university boat race, which was inaugurated in 1828. Nowadays, rowing has become one of the popular Olympic events with the annual Oxford-Cambridge race as the highlight.

Wang Shi, a well-known entrepreneur and President of the Asian Rowing Association, once said, "Rowing completely changed my life." Rowing is not about individual glory, but a way to demonstrate great team spirit of positivity, strength, bravery, perseverance and never-give-up.

On Christmas day, invited by Cushman & Wakefield, M-SPACE team participated in a rowing race at the Shen Di City Rowing Center near Shanghai Disneyland. All teams were briefed on the history of rowing after arriving on site, and conducted professional warm-up exercises and trainings before the race officially began.

An hour later, all teams were in full gear ready on their own track. The game then began with a sonorous “Go!” by the chief coach.

The winner was soon born and announced in the crowd of cheering slogans. Congratulations to the teams being awarded! Most importantly was the post-game experiences and feelings sharing among all participants and the lovely Christmas afternoon all spent together.

Rowing perfectly combines gentlemen spirit with sportsmanship, pursues the interpersonal cooperation, communication and trust, explores the truth and courage against the wind. We shall all row at least once in a lifetime. Row for life. M-SPACE is on its way. Thank you for standing by us.
