TSS claimed overall victory in the heavyweight men’s November assessment, with Olympic bronze medallist Alan Campbell stamping his authority on the event fifteen seconds clear of second place. Coupled with a strong showing on the erg, it was the perfect comeback performance from Campbell in the single, having not competed at the summer's World Championships in Amsterdam.
In addition to Alan, the club sent a further five athletes to trials – two senior lightweight men, one senior woman, an u23 man and an u23 lightweight woman – guided by Director of Rowing Miles Forbes-Thomas. The assessment comprised a 2k erg on day one, followed by a 5k time trial in single sculls the following morning. Under-23s Mike Lawrence and Jess Belcher both set personal bests on the erg, crushing their respective British Rowing benchmarks in the process. Jess Brown and the lightweights Stu Heap and Nathan O’Reilly were all also well within the cut-off times.
Notable performances on the water were produced by Stu (9th, senior lightweight men) and Jess Belcher (7th, u23 lightweight women), as well as solid efforts from Mike (22nd, u23 men), Jess Brown (29th, senior women), and Nathan (22nd, senior lightweight men).
That the club can compete at this high standard across u23, senior, lightweight, heavyweight, women and men is testament to the work the coaches and athletes are putting in throughout our high performance teams and to the support the international rowing is given by the committee and club members.
All athletes are still in contention for international selection this summer. NO'R
