Rowing / Thursday, July 28, 2016 GB call up for Academy rowers - and a couple of Golds for Callum!

Many congratulations to four Academy rowers and their coach who have been picked to represent Great Britain this summer.

We are delighted to report a great win for Callum Urquhart who took Gold for GB at the Coupe De La Jeunesse in Poland. His Coxless Four dominated the event from start to finish with Switzerland second and Italy third. In the end a strong GB squad won the team competition - meaning that Callum brought home a very well-deserved two Golds from Poland!

Josh Armstrong has been selected to defend the quad sculls title he won in Rio last year. Alex Rankin, who represented GB in the junior women's four in Rio, has also been re-selected and will be joined by India Somerside for the World Junior Rowing Championships in Rotterdam. The junior women's four will be coached by The Academy's Iain Somerside.

Congratulations to Callum Broad on his recent win in the double skulls at the Home Internationals.
