2022 World Rowing Junior U19 and U23 Championships

While the rest of the club were enjoying success at the British Championships and rowing for Scotland at the Home International Regatta, Maisie Aspinall and Zoe Beeson were at Caversham training for the U19 World Rowing Championships. The girls both trained and competed in the top selected junior women’s sweep boat on the GB team - the JW 4-. They were selected alongside Issie M from Headington School in Oxford, and fellow Scot Amy N from George Heriots School in Edinburgh. The four girls trained for 10 days, coached by ASRA Development Coach Holly Reid, at the home of GB Rowing in Caversham before flying out to Lake Varese in Northern Italy to race. The competition in the event at Varese proved to be fierce and the 4- found it a tough battle through the repechage to make it to the A-Final. The GB 4- finished 6th in the A Final, with all three medalling crews breaking the world’s best time in the blisteringly quick event. It was overall a fantastic experience that both Maisie and Zoe can take lots of lessons from as they head off to university and on to u23 and senior racing.

There were also two ASRA FPs racing at the u23 World Championships; Abigail Topp in the U23 W8+ and Miles Beeson in the U23 M4-. Abigail was racing at the U23 level for the first time and won a fantastic silver medal sitting in the bow seat of the eight. Miles secured himself his second U23 Gold medal in a row, this time competing in the two seat of the 4- in an impressive A Final performance on the Saturday of racing.

A very successful international trip for all ASRA athletes, coaches and FPs!
