Two Inverness athletes took part in the GB Rowing Team Second Winter
Assessment trials at Boston, Lincolnshire on Saturday 9th February
Excellent results were recorded with Imogen Walsh winning the women's
lightweight single sculls by a convincing 44 second margin over second placed
Kathryn Twyman who was her crewmate in the GB quadruple scull which won gold
at the 2011 World Championships.
In the mens heavyweight coxless pairs, Alan Sinclair claimed a significant
fourth place with his crewmate Nathaniell Reilly O'Donnell, just missing out
on third place by a mere 0.23 seconds.
Both athletes are members of the GB rowing squad which trains at Caversham in
the Thames Valley in preparation for the forthcoming Samsung World Rowing Cup
series of regattas the first of which kicks off in March in Sydney, Australia
