Tees Trio Triumph on the Thames
Anna Fairs, Beth Bryan and Jo Wratten are members of Tees Rowing Club and Tees Active Sports Academy and are making a name for themselves in the world of rowing after Anna won the Junior singles and in the elite four eights Jo and Beth were part of the victorious crew and this was followed up by Beth who was part of the winning crew in the fours.
Jo and Beth’s joy was increased as theyhave been both selected for the Great Britain women’s Under 23 eights crew which will complete at Royal Henley this weekend. Both girls will hopefully have a great chance of being selected to compete at the Under 23 World Rowing Championships in Austria later this month.
Anna is currently at training camp working hard to hopefully secure a place on the Great Britain Under 18 squad who will be competing at the world championships in Lithuania in August.
The girls success is an indication of the local rowing talent on Teesside as Olympic Gold Medallist Kat Copeland demonstrated 12 months ago at the London Olympics. All the girls are coached by James Harris who has been instrumental in the girls development and is a constant motivational force particularly on cold dark winter mornings throughout the winter as the girls make their way up and down the River Tees
