Over the weekend of Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st July 2019, Riley H and his doubles rowing partner travelled up to Nottingham to race at the British Rowing Junior Championships. They were racing against the best British crews, in the air group. On Saturday, a wet and windy day, they raced the 1500m time trial. Despite the weather, they placed 2nd out of 40 contestants! This secured their position in the semi-finals on Sunday. On Sunday, they soared through the semis into 2nd position, gaining a spot in the finals that took place later that day. They raced over 2km for a prestigious spot on the podium, and after a good start and flying down the course, they finished in 2nd place, winning silver medals!
Congratulations to Riley for his hard work and commitment!
