It wasn’t just the sun that was shining at Caversham as Scotland’s up and coming rowers made an early season statement of intent at the GB Rowing Team Senior, Under 23 and FISU Trials.  The trials aim to identify rowers for the non-Olympic summer programme which includes the World Rowing Championships and World Rowing Under 23 Championships (both being held in Rotterdam, the Netherlands - 21-28 August) and the FISU World University Rowing Championships (Poznan, Poland – 2-4 September).


GB U23 Selection Success for Scottish Athletes

Two rowers from Aberdeen are amongst five Scottish rowers selected to represent Great Britain at the 2013 World Rowing Under 23 Championships. Iona Riley and Lewis McCue are part of University Rowing Aberdeen, a unique partnership between the University of Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University and supported by Scottish Rowing. Additionally, both rowers are supported by the sportscotland institute of sport which gives specialised support to aspiring athletes with ambitions to make the Olympic podium.

Louise Martin CBE, Chair of sportscotland, said: "Congratulations to all of our Scottish rowers on being selected to compete for GB at the Under 23 World Championships. After last summer's terrific Olympic gold medals for Heather Stanning and Katherine Grainger, it is wonderful to see talented Scottish rowers coming through the system and competing at the very highest level in their age category. I wish them every success in Austria."
