Winckless Fully Fit for Lucerne

Sarah Winckless, who raced and won with the women’s quad at the Munich World Cup last month despite a painful left wrist injury, is back to full fitness and will race in  Lucerne this weekend a tthe BearingPoint  World Cup Finals.

She will be part of the Camelot-sponsored women’s quadruple scull with Katherine Grainger, Rebecca Romero and Frances Houghton who were forced to miss the Henley Royal Regatta last week to give Winckless time to recover.  The quartet are world cup leaders going into this weekend’s finals.

So, too are the men’s four, also backed by Camelot. Whilst the men have an unassailable lead, only the Ukraine can catch the women to take the World Cup Trophy.

Peter Wells has not returned to full fitness and will be unable to contest the single scull in Lucerne. The women’s lightweight quadruple scull have been forced to  withdraw due to an injury to Lorna Norris – an injury which also forced them to scratch from their event at Henley Royal Regatta.

FISA, the world rowing governing body, has announced that 700 athletes from 42 nations will race in 22 events in Lucerne, making this one of the stiffest tests yet for all GB crews this season.

GB Rowing has announced that its World Championships squad will be announced on Thursday 14 July (see media invitation below). The World Championships are in Gifu, Japan, from August 28th – September 4th.
