GB junior men’s fours create a little history at Munich Junior Regatta

The GB Rowing Team’s trio of junior men’s fours created their own bit of history at the Munich Junior Regatta this weekend when they all reached the final during Saturday’s racing. This was a first for GB at this level.

The four containing Luke Briggs, Cameron MacRitchie, William Kenworthy and Alex Wilding took the top finish with a bronze whilst the other two combinations were fifth and sixth respectively.

Jack Beaumont put in a pleasing performance to take silver for the team, which is guided by Richard Boulton, in the single scull. Beaumont was in the junior men’s quad which last season finished fourth at the World Championships in Racice.

The junior men’s eight, featuring the top-finishing four from Saturday and members of the other two crews,  stroked by Wilding and coxed by Alastair Camm followed Saturday’s good performances by taking a well-earned silver on the Sunday programme of events.  This was a step up from their showing in the heats.

Britain’s junior women’s quadruple scull of Kiara Weaver, Jessica Leyden, Katie Bartlett and Lucy Burgess also took a bronze today.
