Harriet Noyes, rowing in the coxless four for Great Britain, won two Silver medals at the Coupe de la Jeunesse in Amsterdam beating fourteen other nations. After very close races, GB was just denied first place by a strong Polish crew. Similar excellent results across the other boat classes secured overall victory for the GB team for the second year running.
Stratford Coach Sam Hill said, “It’s fantastic to see our athletes medal on the international stage. Their achievements represent the constant hard work and dedication the whole squad has put in over the last five years.”
