At the National Schools Regatta in Nottingham on Saturday, Clydesdale’s Giacomo Galano won the Junior 17 Single Sculls Event.
In a competitive final, Giacomo led from the start to secure a winning margin of 3 seconds over the 2000 metre course. Giacomo’s performance at the weekend confirms why he and coach Chris Phillips have been invited to attend GB Final Junior Trials in July.
In addition to Giacomo’s win, Ryan Morrison overcame a lingering cold last week to secure a strong 4th place in the final of J16 singles. Here’s hoping Ryan makes a full recovery.
Euan Malone was competing in Championship singles and ranked 16th in a very competitive time trial.
All in all, it was a very successful regatta for the Junior Men’s squad – much credit goes to Coach Chris Phillips for all his work over the last few years in developing a strong squad.
