Just what the doctor ordered – a Silver Medal
A Cockermouth doctor won a silver medal earlier this month rowing in a national competition.
At only 49, Nick Cowan, of Mayfauld, Eaglesfield, is classed as a veteran and came second in the single sculling at the rowing championships in Nottingham.
The GP at South Street Surgery said he is still young for rowing events.
He said: “In rowing you become a veteran after the age of 30. People up to 70 years old still regularly compete at both regional and national level.
“I have been rowing for six years now and I was delighted to do so well. It is always nice to win but I am proud to have got a silver medal.”
