Rowing Australia has announced the addition of Caleb Antill, as the Men’s Sculling Reserve, to the Senior Australian Rowing Team for the 2017 World Rowing Championships. Antill, a member of the Reinhold Batschi Men’s National Training Centre and ANUBC, recently returned from the World Rowing U23 Championships where he finished sixth in the U23 Men’s Single Scull, he is also a former World U23 Champion in the Men’s Quadruple Scull (2016). Caleb joins Luke Letcher of Black Mountain RC and Angus Moore, formerly of Canberra Rowing Club, who are members of respectively of the Men’s double and Men’s eight to compete in Florida.
Men’s Head Coach, Ian Wright, said: “With Hamish Playfair having been selected for the Men’s Eight for the World Championships we found ourselves without a men’s sculling reserve for the World Championships in Florida. We have added Caleb to the team as cover for our Men’s Double Scull and I am sure that travelling with the Senior Australian Rowing Team will prove to be a valuable experience for Caleb.”
