In a fast heat in Trakai, the British LM4x (Kieran Brown/Rupert Price (CULRC 2011, 2012)/Alexander Robertson/Timothy Richards) had a strong start, coming through in second place (behind France) after 500m. Unfortunately in the second 1000m they were unable to sustain their initial pace and dropped into 5th position, seeing them progress into the repechage.
In the repechage, the quartet managed to secure third place behind Austria and the Netherlands. Sadly this means that just miss out on the A-Final, although they should be strong contenders in the B final.
Further updates to follow.
CULRC President Rupert Price has been selected to represent great Britain at the U23 World Championships in Trakai, Lithuania. As part of a squad of 9 Lightweights Rupert is in the LM4x sitting at 2, alongside athletes from Imperial College, Leander Club and Edinburgh University.
Their first race is on Wednesday 11th July in the afternoon with the finals on Saturday 14th July.
From everyone at the club we wish him the best of luck and will be following his progress throughout the week.
