With so many Oxford Students, past and present, selected to join in the GB squad representing at World Champs as reported on in July on our post Oxford rowers in GB World Championships Squad; we were not let down by the level of competition in Amsterdam over the weekend. Having so many World Records set and also a great weekend of Finals including where most of the WR were set. This only added to the atmosphere with a great crowd out supporting the event.
The whole championship accumulated with the potentially most exciting race down the whole course! From the grandstand you can see just out from the line the crews were in the top picture and the crowds going in the panorama in the small picture below (which can be enlarged by clicking on it). It can only be thanked to all the crews from all the competing countries for putting their effort into a strong build up to this years championships.
We want to congratulate Andrew Triggs Hodge on his 2014 World Championship title as part of the Men’s Four crew alongside Peter Reed and Constantine Louloudis on their 2014 World Championship title as part of the Men’s Eight.
