International Glory For GMS Rower Emily Downing

During the weekend of 8th-11th May, there was an indoor Rowing Challenge between Great Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Rowers from all four countries had to row as far as possible in 1 minute. In overall terms, GB came top, not surprising given the much larger team, but in terms of average metres per rower, NZ were clear winners with 316.4 m vs GB at 304.9 in second place.

On an individual level, however, Emily Downing performance trumped all other competitors: Emily’s achieved an amazing score of 319m, making her the Gold Medalist for WJ14 ( Year 9 girls),  a huge 5 metres ahead of her next rival from Australia.

To prove she is not just a sprint powerhouse, Emily also established a new British record for her age group, which has been certified by Concept 2. Emily is clearly an athlete with tremendous potential and we look forward to seeing continue to develop over the coming years. GMS are extraordinarily proud of her.
