Congratulations to all our Rowers who headed up to Sydney to compete in the 2023 Australian Masters Rowing Championships this past week. The ACT had athletes competing from ANU Boat Club, Black Mountain Rowing Club, Canberra Rowing Club and the ADF Rowing Club – a strong contingent to represent our territory!
ANU was the best of the ACT clubs coming in at 20th on the medal tally and 3.5 golds in the bag. ADF and Black Mountain both took home some bling but it was in the interstate where the ACT shone.
Three crews, all claiming a podium position is a great result for our small state. Stuart John started us off well, taking home a silver in the PR3 Men’s Masters Single – a strong row from Stu! Sue Donoghue stormed out of the gate to take home the gold in clear water, making that back-to-back for Sue! Our Women’s quad was strong off the blocks and was leading through the 500m but was pipped by Victoria to take home a strong silver.
We are very proud of all the ACT crews, and every athlete who participated over the weekend. Well done to all!
