Congratulations to Cantabs Juniors at NJIRC

The National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships was held on Friday 2rd March 2012, filling the Lee Valley Athletics Centre with 1,670 competitors from around the country.

Competitors from Cantabs gave accomplished performances in the Boys Boat Race Relay event and the Year 10 Boys Event:

  • The format of the Year 10 Boys competition was attempting to row the greatest distance in 5 minutes.  John Broadbent came 19th out of 136 competitors, having rowed 1480m (an average split of 1:46.5).

Well done to all involved!  Full results are posted on the London Youth Rowing website.
