GB Rowers Produce ‘Firework’ Display

The exceptional performance of the GB Rowing Team at the recent World Championships held in New Zealand captured the attention of Andy Hunt, CEO of the British Olympic Association.

Andy’s 9th November blog likens Britain’s best ever World Championships medal haul to that of an impressive Guy Fawkes ‘firework’ display stating “while many of us throughout the UK gathered around bonfires to celebrate Guy Fawkes last weekend, Great Britain’s rowers were busy producing fireworks of their own at the World Championships on Lake Karapiro in New Zealand.”

“No less than 34 British rowers will return to the UK as World Championship medallists – a fantastic achievement and a huge boost to the athletes, with less than two years until the greatest sporting show on earth hits Dorney Lake in 2012.”
