Rowing success for Perse pupils
6 May 2014
Year 11 rowers Edward Gardiner and Christian Martin-Redman have been in fantastic form on the water. They both represented the Eastern Region in the Junior Inter Regional Regatta on the 26th April at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham.
Ed competed in the J16 1x winning the bronze medal and therefore putting him in the fastest three single scullers of his age group in the country. Ed and Christian then raced together in the J16 2x where they finished in fourth place making them the fourth fastest crew in the country for their age group.
Their efforts helped the Eastern Region finish in second place overall with 211 points, their best ever performance, second only to the traditionally strong team of Thames Upriver (Henley and Marlow).
Congratulations to both pupils on their excellent performances.
