Charlotte Crowned Junior National Rowing Champion
Stamford High School pupil, Charlotte Bolton and her partner Poppy Shipley were crowned Women’s Junior National Champions in the 15 x2 sculling event on the Olympic Rowing lake at Eton Dorney near Windsor over the recent bank holiday weekend. The pair rowed 2000 meters in 8 minutes and 33 seconds winning the final by a clear six seconds leaving the competitors in dismay as the pair have only been rowing together for a few months.
This latest win is the second success for Charlotte in the last month or so after securing third place at the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships held at the Lee Valley Athletics Centre, London in the Year 10 sprint race rowing 1,313 meters in 5 minutes.
In her first year with the GB Rowing Development Programme, Charlotte, is certainly showing great promise and has continued to go from strength to strength with her commitment and training paying huge dividends.
