Ten Washington rowers earned medals Sunday on the final day of the World Rowing Under 23 Championships at Nathan Benderson Park. The UW contingent, 25 athletes in all, was led by a pair of gold medalists: Dimitra Tsamopoulou (Greece) in the women's double sculls and Harvey Kay (Great Britain) in the men's eight. Another eight individuals earned silver or bronze.
Eight UW athletes saw their World Rowing Under 23 Championships regatta come to an end with finals races Saturday at Nathan Benderson Park. Four Huskies raced in A finals (top six) while four more competed in B finals. Another 17 will row in finals on the last day of the championships tomorrow.
With the finals already set for most events, Friday was a much less busy day than the previous two for Husky rowers competing at the World Rowing Under 23 Championships.
A win by the U.S. women's four, with UW rower Teal Cohen in the two seat, highlighted the morning for the Huskies on the first day of the World Rowing Under 23 Championships Wednesday in Sarasota, Fla.
Husky rowing fans will have numerous opportunities to watch Washington rowers in action next week as 25 UW men and women will compete at the 2019 World Rowing Under 23 Championships in Sarasota, Fla.
Washington was well-represented on the first round of the Collegiate Rowing Coaches' Association's 2019 postseason honors. UW head coach Yasmin Farooq was named Region 5 Coach of the Year while 10 Huskies earned All-America and/or Scholar-Athlete honors.
