Congratulations to Jamies Evans, 17, who has won the U
18 Welsh Indoor Rowing Championships held in Cardiff on Saturday,
Jamie, who is showing his excellent ability in many different sports, said, " The competition was quite tough and I wasn't sure how I would
compare with the others taking part in the U 18 section, so I am really pleased to have won. My time over a
distance of 2,000 metres was 6 minutes and 38 seconds, so I am pretty happy with
that. I now go on to take part in the English Championships which will take
place in Manchester on January 27th."
Alun Stedman, our Club Captain, said, " Jamie
is proving to be a very strong and valued young member of our club and has shown
his rowing skills in both longboat rowing and also sculling. We are all very
pleased that he has done so well in the Welsh U 18 Indoor Rowing championships
which have highlighted Jamie's strength and stamina. We wish him luck for the
rest of the National championships."
