Largest contingent ever wins eight medals including two golds
Local rowing club Tideway Scullers School took its largest ever contingent of 33 crews to the Junior British Champions with fantastic results.
Held in Nottingham’s National Water Sports Centre, the crews of boys and girls aged from 14 to 18 won 2 gold medals, 3 silver medals and 3 bronze medals between them fending off competition from some of the country’s top rowing talent.
“Watching talent develop has always been a subject close to my heart and it is great to be supporting the best junior rowing talent in the UK as they battled to become this year's British Rowing Junior Champions,” said Olympic bronze medalist and double World Champion Sarah Winckless MBE
“These Junior Championships guarantee that everyone competes as equals and, unlike other events that are more selective or based on school crews, this regatta is open to everyone at a club level. There is only one criteria for the weekend – go out and enjoy your rowing.”
Tideway Scullers School is situated next to Chiswick Bridge on Dan Mason Drive. It is a place for juniors to learn and enjoy sculling, and to develop into competitive athletes. The coaching team is tasked with developing juniors into the top scullers in the UK and has had many juniors representing their country in international competitions.
Junior Members are expected to commit to regular training, both on the water and in the gym to develop technique, strength and fitness. Training schedules apply to school term time, though some groups continue to train in the school holidays.
