The purpose of this research is to find predictors of 2000 meters indoor rowing performance from the aspect of physical condition that is the ability of aerobic, anaerobic and muscle power. The samples used were twenty-six (26) rowers, consisting of 16 male rowers and 10 female rowers, aged 19 ± 29 years old, who joined the Program Indonesia Emas, participated in this study. Participants give written approval before participating in this research. All experimental procedures are approved by the Executive Board of the Indonesian Rowing and Canoeing Association. The test was performed with a physical test series developed by Danish Rowing, taking a standard of 21 Danish rowers. Rowing athletes participated a 3-day physical tests, showing all out performance for the type of time-determined test or distance specified using Concept2, type C rowing ergometer. The results of this study revealed that the relationship between rowing performance variables 2000 meters with free variables, sorted from the largest to the smallest shows: aerobic capacity = 0.976, muscle power = 0.950 and anaerobic capacity = 0.937. This shows a strong correlation between aerobic capacity, muscle power and anaerobic capacity (the correlation between variables was above 0.5). This indicates the presence of multicollinearity, or the correlation between the three independent variables. After passing through 2 stages of backward method, the independent variable that is included in regression model is Aerobic Capacity and Muscle Power. A 97.1% variation in rowing 2000 meter rowing performance can be explained by variable aerobic capacity and muscle power. While the rest (100% -97.1% = 2.9%) is explained by other factors. In conclusion, aerobic and muscle power capacity has a significant effect and can be a predictor of 2000 meters rowing performance. In addition, the research is also in line with other studies, which show that strength and endurance are important training objectives to optimize 2000 m rowing performance. However, the prediction variables identified in this study may be specific to the samples in this study. To use this predictor in more rowers, cross validation in larger samples is necessary. This research can be a source of information and references in the development of scholarship training especially in identifying talent of prospective rowing athletes. For coaches, the finding can be a source of information and references in in determining the priority scale aspects that must be fostered to improve the performance of rowing athletes.
