Bishop Helps USA U23 Eight Win Gold
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State standout Sierra Bishop helped the USA U23 Eight win gold at the U23 World Championships Sunday morning in Racice, Czech Republic.
The U.S.A. boat clocked in at 6:16.69, finishing nearly four seconds ahead of the second place Netherlands. The American squad started the race in the second position, but took over the lead in the final 500 meters and dominated the second half of the race.
Bishop, who was named an All-America Honorable Mention last week, rowed in the 4-seat.
Also competing at the U23 Championships, Zoe Adamson was part of the Great Britain double-sculls team that finished fifth. That squad came in with a time of 7:21.98. Fellow Oregon State rower Muryn Greene was also selected for the Great Britain squad, but did not take part due to COVID-19 related squad restrictions.
