GB Rowing Team add two more Worlds medals

The GB Rowing Team won a silver and bronze today, in challenging tailwind conditions, to add to the gold and silver won yesterday at the World Rowing Championships in Holland.

Silver went to the men’s coxed pair of Alan Sinclair, Scott Durant and cox Henry Fieldman in a race won by New Zealand in a world best time. Sam Scrimgeour and Jono Clegg added a bronze after a thrilling final sprint in the lightweight men’s pair.

“The first half was good, the second half was more challenging but we had enough to get out in front of the Germans and stay there”, said Durant after the coxed race.

“Everything went very much to plan”, said Fieldman. “We executed it well”. Sinclair added: “We knew they (the Kiwis) would push out in front after 500m, we anticipated that and kept our focus very much on our own race”.

Scrimgeour talked post-race of the strength of season that he and Clegg had enjoyed and during which they have been on several international podiums.

With 250m to go it looked as if today’s medal might well be sliver but the British duo lost out to France in the final sprint with Switzerland successfully defending their 2013 title.

The lightweight women’s quadruple scull of Ruth Walczak, Brianna Stubbs, Ellie Piggott and Charlotte Taylor were sixth in their debut final at senior World level.

Earlier in the day, the lightweight men’s four of Mark Aldred, Peter and Richard Chambers, and Chris Bartley qualified for Sunday’s final after a sizzling battle with the Danes who set a world’s best time to win the semi-final.

“We went faster than any other British lightweight men’s four has gone. Obviously you would like to win but qualifying was the aim and that wasn’t the finished article. There’s more to come on Sunday”, said Richard Chambers.

There was disappointment though for the young, men’s double scull of John Collins and Jonny Walton who were fourth in their semi-final as was Vicky Thornley in the open women’s single after a titanic struggle to hold onto third vis-a-vis the more experienced Russian Julia Levina.

“I am really pleased with our two medals today and I believe tomorrow we have some strong medal chances in our finals. Special credit today for an exceptional performance from our lightweight men’s four in qualifying for the A Final in a cracking time”, said Sir David Tanner, GB Rowing Team Performance Director.

The GB Rowing Team has seven more finalists over the weekend. The men’s and women’s pairs and the men’s four and quad will race on Saturday with the lightweight men’s four and the men’s and women’s eights on Sunday.

For British viewers, the event will be televised by the BBC with two hours of programming on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 August on BBC 2. Transmission times are currently:

In today’s semi-final of the open men’s double scull, Jonny Walton and John Collins once more faced the Germans Stephan Krueger and Hans Gruhne who rowed them out of direct qualification to today’s race by just 0.04 of a second in the heat in a reversal of the season’s closing world cup in Lucerne in which the GB duo were fourth and the Germans were fifth in the final.

Croatia’s Sinkovic brothers, winners in Lucerne, were the favourites to win today and Norway, the reigning World Champions, were also in the field. Just before the semi-final session started the lane draw was changed to accommodate strong cross-tail winds.

In the early phases Croatia and Germany got off to the better start. The British were leading the chasing crews just ahead of Bulgaria.

By halfway the Croatians had a slight lead over Germany with the British easing a bit further ahead of Bulgaria in third but still under threat. The Sinkovic brothers turned up the heat in the next 500m to get a length over Germany whilst the GB boat was still holding third but only a few tenths ahead of the rest.

In the tailwind, the British duo battled hard but eventually lost out to the Bulgarians. In the dying strokes the reigning world champions Norway came through to take fourth by a few hundredths. By then it didn’t matter as the top three crews were already through to Sunday’s finals with Croatia leading in a world best time.

Today’s lightweight men’s four semi-final featured New Zealand, Denmark and Mark Aldred, brothers Peter and Richard Chambers, and the Chris Bartley of Great Britain in a repeat of the final at the world cup in Lucerne last month in which the honours went to the Kiwis with Denmark second and GB in third. Italy, sixth in that final, and the Chinese posed additional threats to progression to Sunday’s final.

One of the more anticipated races of the day opened with the GB boat taking an early lead whilst some wayward steering from the Chinese saw them momentarily hit the buoy line before recovering to continue.

The Chambers siblings, Bartley and Aldred hit the first timing point in the lead by a smidgen. Denmark were tracking them closely as were New Zealand, racing today with a sub on board because of injury. In the next 200m Denmark picked up the lead with a canvas over GB and a half-length over New Zealand. China were still very much in contention.

At halfway the positions remained unchanged but China were pressing New Zealand hard. In the ensuing 30 strokes the Danes tried to ease out more but the GB quartet kept in tight contention.

New Zealand dropped back as the Danish and GB boats pushed further ahead and in a all-guns-blazing finish the Danes took the verdict at the line in a new World best time of 5:43.16 to GB’s 5:43.97. New Zealand took the third qualifying spot. The French won the opposing semi, Australia were second and a photo gave third to Holland over Germany.

Afterwards Aldred said of the experience of racing a semi-final: “It’s always pretty nervy as there are no second chances. We had a good race. We knew we were up against the Danes and Kiwis but we looked on that as a challenge. I know we were second but we had a good row and we can turn that round on Sunday”.

Bartley said: “It felt like we had a good row and we needed to make sure of qualifying. There are things we can improve on when we go into the final”.

“It would have been nice to win today but we have gone faster than any other GB lightweight men’s four has every gone before”, said Richard Chambers.

Vicky Thornley was next in action for the GB Rowing Team in the semi-final of the women’s single scull. Thornley was due to race her in the double scull with Frances Houghton who did not recover in time from a virus-type condition.

Thornley reached the semi-final with a third-placed quarter-final finish. Today she was drawn in the same contest as World Champion Kim Crow, as well Russia’s experienced Julia Levina and China’s Duran Jingli.

Thornley set off with intent and was well-positioned behind China and Australia in the opening 500m. She held that place through the halfway mark but looked like she might be tiring. Levina was ready to pounce from a more sheltered inside lane and took a half length lead over Thornley with 500m to go.

China’s Duran Jingli stretched out her lead to win and Crow was second with Levina taking third. So Thornley will now race a B final.

In the later finals session the GB men’s coxed pair went to the line knowing that the New Zealanders, Eric Murray and Hamish Bond and their cox, were the ones to watch. The Antipodean duo are defending men’s pair champions here and are doubling up in an attempt to win both events.

Germany, winners of the event at the Lucerne world cup by just half a second from Scott Durant, Alan Sinclair and cox Henry Fieldman, could also pose a threat.

Durant, Sinclair and Fieldman were quickest off the line and were the early race leader with South Africa also showing well. Soon, though , the Kiwis were up on their shoulders. At 500m gone the Kiwis led by a few tenths and then stretched that lead out to two-thirds of a length.
Germany came up into third place.

By halfway the New Zealanders had blasted off into the distance to win and set a world best time, leaving the more interesting battle for silver and bronze in their wake. The GB combination was still holding Germany at bay and then moved out to a clearwater lead. As the crews moved up to the picnic area and roared on by the crowd Sinclair, Durant and Fieldman were cementing their lead and racing towards silver which they won in 6:43.45.

In the ensuing race Sam Scrimgeour and Jono Clegg were drawn alongside their perpetual 2014 rivals, the Swiss combination of Simon Niepmann and Lucas Tramer. winners in Lucerne. The Czech Republic, in an outside lane here were gold medallists at the June world cup in France, and the French and Argentinians have also enjoyed world cup podium finishes this season.

Just before halfway the Swiss put in a big push to take a half-length lead over the GB duo with the French moving back on the British.

With 500m to go the Swiss had moved further ahead and Scrimgeour and Clegg were coming under further pressure from the French. It was going to be close, close, close as the crews came to the line. Silver to France by a whisker from GB in bronze.

The GB Rowing Team lightweight women’s quadruple scull rounded up the action on day six of the Championships.

Ruth Walczak, Ellie Piggott, Brianna Stubbs and Charlotte Taylor have all experienced success separately. Taylor reached a world cup single scull final on her debut. Piggott and Taylor were silver medallists behind Imogen Walsh and Kat Copeland at the world cup in June and Walczak took lightweight single scull silver there. Stubbs, with Piggott, was World U23 double scull champion last year.

Here they have not quite fired as a combination. In today’s final they were soon half a length down on the leading boats who were headed by China on their inside. As the race unfolded, the Dutch came through strongly with Australia and then Germany. With 750m gone, the British quartet looked out of the medal zone but were holding their own in the chasing group.

Only in the final phases did the British drop back to sixth in a race won by the Dutch defending world champions with Australia and Germany in silver and bronze.

After yesterday’s semi-final in which he finished fifth Zak Lee Green said: “It has been a fantastic experience to come here and experience a top event and to have the opportunity to race means you learn so much. It’s been unbelievable. In that semi I gave it absolutely everything. There was nothing left”. Today he raced to fourth place in the B final, having been third early in the race.
