GB v France J16

On Thursday 7th July , after an enforced break since 2019, the GB Rowing Team selected a full- strength team to race at the Olympic venue of Vaires sur Marne for the 40th edition of the GB v France J16 Match and following their outstanding performance at the GB J16 selection trials at Nottingham on the 26. June, ASRA ‘s J16 girls – Maggie Seward, Charlotte Arthur, Tamara Brew & Emily Simpson – were selected to form the eight along with Andrea Isla-Pujoi, Phoebe Williams, Steffi Brewer and Leah Farquharson from Surbiton High School.

On the day, despite their best efforts, the French eight proved too strong for the British composite, but, as Peter Sheppard, Deputy Director of Olympic Highways said:

The GB v France J16 Match is the first step on British Rowing’s Olympic Performance Pathway and gives athletes the opportunity to represent their country and experience a pre-competition camp, team travel and international competition

Congratulations to the girls and the ASRA coaching team.
