Which GB Rowing Team athletes will be competing at Henley Royal Regatta 2018?
Close to 50 GB Rowing Team senior squad athletes will be competing at Henley Royal Regatta, where they will represent their clubs
The GB Rowing Team senior squads will be well represented at Henley Royal Regatta in 2018, with 48 athletes set to race the 2,112m course at the historic event.
A number of crews that raced at the recent World Rowing Cup in Linz remain unchanged, including the double scull pairing of Angus Groom and Jack Beaumont, with the latter going for his seventh Henley win and his second in the Double Sculls Challenge Cup.
Harry Glenister, who in 2017 pipped Beaumont to becoming the first rower to win all three quadruple sculls titles at the regatta, has switched his attention to sweep this season and will have a chance to take his fifth overall title. He’ll race in Silver Goblets & Nickalls Challenge Cup men’s pair event with Leander Club teammate George Rossiter.
Fresh off the back of their bronze medal in the women’s pair in Linz, Rowan McKellar and Hattie Taylor team up again in the Hambledon Pairs Challenge Cup, with the women’s quad also unchanged from Austria as Mathilda Hodgkins Byrne, Zoe Lee, Jess Leyden and Melissa Wilson are set to race.
The women’s eight features seven changes from the crew that finished fourth in Linz, with silver medallists in the women’s four Fiona Gammond, Holly Norton, Karen Bennett and Rebecca Shorten among those coming in.
The Henley Royal Regatta gives the GB athletes the chance to compete for their clubs in composite crews.
