Brookes Rowers Continue to Shine on the World Stage
British Rowing made the decision to take the Project Pais squad, a younger, less experienced group of athletes to the World Cup III in Sabaudia, Italy, which gave some Brookes Rowing athletes their first Senior International rowing experience.
“We are three years out from the next Olympic Games and World Cup III 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.” Brendan Purcell, the British Rowing Director of Performance
There was Brookes interest in both of the Men’s Coxless four, with Sam Nunn, Sam Bannister, Matt Aldridge and David Ambler making up one boat and Lenny Jenkins, Matt Rowe and David Bewicke-Copley and Freddy Davidson making up the second.
Both boats made it through to the A-Final with the first boat placing the Silver medal and the second boat displaying their power and speed to secure a very respectable 5th place.
Esme Booth and Daisy Bellamy of Brookes Rowing also made up half of the Women’s Coxless four and finished in 4th place and just missed out on a podium spot.
“We are tremendously proud to be represented by such a talented and dedicated group of athletes. We hope that this will be the first of many appearances at the peak of international competition. BROOKES|Rowing look forward now to watching how they perform on the domestic stage in the coming weeks." Brookes Rowing Staff
We can't wait to continue to follow along with the Brookes Rowing successes this summer!
