Juniors Ready for Trakai World Champs

  • 26 Jul 17

The New Zealand Junior Rowing Team competing at the Junior World Rowing Championships departed New Zealand on Sunday morning. The Juniors travel to Lithuania to take on 745 competitors from 58 other countries.

Eight crews made up of 21 athletes will compete at the Junior World Champs. Six of these athletes are returning rowers from the 2016 Junior team, and will bring valuable experience to their crews.

The regatta will take place in Trakai, Lithuania, and runs from the 2nd-6th August. Lake Galvė was the host of the 2013 Junior World Champs, and the 2012 Under 23 World Champs.
