High School Rower Competes in National Championships

  • British International School of Chicago, South Loop | Private School Chicago

Congratulations to Thomas in Year 12 for taking 17th place in the 2016 USRowing Youth National Championships at Princeton!

Thomas and his rowing partner Henry qualified to compete after finishing third at the Midwest Junior Rowing Championships, beating crews who had no doubt trained for months and years.

At the championships, strong winds forced officials to cancel the second day of races, giving the boys just one chance to qualify for the final round of competition. Despite the challenging weather, they rowed really well. They put up an impressive time, but it wasn’t enough to qualify for the final.

Thomas and Henry competed with grace and fantastic sportsmanship, staying an extra day to cheer on their fellow competitors.

Onwards to next year!
