Rowing Australia announced today the 2012 Australian Junior Rowing Team following the conclusion of the recent selection trials conducted at the Sydney International Regatta Centre.
The team will compete at the Junior World Championships in Plovdiv, Bulgaria from 15th – 19th August.
Congratulations to ACT’s Luke Letcher who made the Australian Junior Men’s Quad Scull crew to compete in Plovdiv, Bulgaria from 15th – 19th August and we wish him the best of luck at the World Championship regatta.
The other members of the crew are Riley Lum (SA), Daniel Whitehead (NSW), and Harry Jones (Qld). The crew will be coached by Peter Kupcis (Victoria).
Luke’s selection follows on from his success at the National Regatta when he won the Championship Under 19 Single Sculls, was a member of the winning Under 19 Quad Sculls and was also a member of third placed Schoolboy Quad.
Luke continued his dominant form from the National regatta through the selection trials, and his crew has enormous potential to challenge the Europeans if the crew can combine well. Luke will continue training in Canberra, with the crew coming together at several training camps prior to their departure.
