Ourc Members Compete At The World University Rowing Championships

Aug. 18, 2010

Elyse Fraser and Fergus Fauvel of Otago University Rowing Club have competed at the World University Rowing Championships in the weekend. Elyse and Fergus competed in the mens and womens heavyweight single sculls respectively. Elyse was able to place 7th by winning the B final and Fergus placed a credible 5th in the A final in difficult conditions. The mens single scull was the largest event in the regatta so to place 5th is an exceptional achievement. Congratulations to the athletes and also thanks to Richard Parr for coaching over winter!
