Big Success at the British Rowing Indoor Championships!

Posted on 4 January 2019 by Miss Emily Acton-Edmiston

The Queen’s Gate Rowing Squad got the Christmas holidays off to a great start, when they travelled to the iconic Lee Valley Velopark for the Mizuno British Rowing Indoor Championships, now considered the largest Indoor Rowing event in the world.

With the motivating backdrop of bright lights, big beats, and a roaring crowd, LIV’s Miya Amrouni took the silver medal Year 8 Girls 500m category, with a time of 01:53.30. Removian Isabelle Wilkinson-Campbell placed 6th in the Year 7 Girls 2 minute race, and 4th in the 500m race with a time of 02:02.70, just 0.4 seconds away from the bronze medal winner.

Elsewhere in the squad, UVI pupil Ella Meltzer completed a Rowing Leader course with British Rowing, which enables her to safely run a rowing session under the supervision of a qualified coach. This course is the first step on the coaching ladder for her.

Congratulations to all the girls, and keep up the good work!
