After a thrilling day of racing Peter Sheppard, British Rowing’s Chief Coach for U23s and Juniors said: “the aim this weekend was to give these young men and women an opportunity to race at a World Cup and on the world stage. They’ve taken the opportunity and extra credit to those that have come back with a medal. Every athlete has learnt a lot from the racing and improved how they race, with many getting personal bests and there are some people here who I am sure we will see in Paris. I’d also like to say a special thanks to all the coaches from the home clubs who have supported their athletes and helped us to make this weekend happen.”

British Rowing Director of Performance Brendan Purcell added: “We are three years out from the next Olympic Games and World Cup 3 has been an opportunity for this new crop to gain senior experience and lay down a marker as we look to build the squad that will compete in Paris. The future looks bright based on today’s finals performances.”

The men’s four (M4-) GBR1 crew of David Ambler, Matthew Aldridge, Samuel Bannister and Samuel Nunn secured a podium spot in a brilliant race that saw them win a silver medal. The GBR2 crew of Freddie Davidson, David Bewicke-Copley, Matthew Rowe and Lenny Jenkin were fifth.

The men’s pair (M2-), GBR1 of Calvin Tarczy and Douwe De Graaf, who made their international debuts just two days ago put in a spirited row, securing a fantastic second place silver medal finish. The GBR2 crew of James Vogel and Ryan Todhunter were sixth.

The women’s pair (W2-)  final saw two GB crews racing and it was the GBR2 crew of Susannah Dear and Samantha Redgrave who came out on top, picking up an impressive bronze medal, just ahead of the GBR1 crew of Heidi Long and Alice Davies in fourth place.

Also winning bronze medals were the men’s double (M2x) of Victor Kleshnev and Rory Harris and for Lola Anderson in the women’s single scull (W1x).

The women’s four (W4-) of Lauren Irwin, Hope Cessford, Daisy Bellamy and Esme Booth finished fourth, just missing out on a podium spot.

Earlier this morning, Kathryn Wilkinson-Feller and George Bourne competed in their single sculls (W1x and M1x) B finals finishing in eighth and eighth place respectively. On Saturday, Jack Burns won the men’s single sculls (M1x) C final and finished thirteenth overall.
