• Becca Chin at World Uni Rowing Champs

    Becca Chin who started her rowing here at Royals coached by Chris Jackman and Charles Green is now at Manchester Met. This weekend 28 of Great Britain’s best young rowers will compete at the 13th World University Rowing Championships which is taking place in Gravelines, France.

    The 28 rowers (including one cox) selected by British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) to race for GB this weekend will represent 15 universities, with the largest representation coming from Newcastle, who have six rowers in the squad. The event provides an excellent opportunity for these up and coming athletes to leave a lasting impression on GB’s coaches for the winter months ahead, as well as a final chance to add to successes they have had throughout the 2014 season.

    Zak Lee-Green, of Manchester University, and Rebecca (Becca) Chin, of Manchester Metropolitan, are two members of the squad who have already managed to break into the senior GB Rowing Team this year. Chin was a member of the victorious women’s eight which competed at the Windermere Cup in Seattle at the start of the season, whilst Lee-Green raced in the lightweight men’s single scull at the second World Cup in Aigbuebelette, finishing 9th overall.

    This weekend’s women’s four of Karen Bennett, Becca Chin, Michelle Vezie and Pippa Whittaker were part of a composite women’s eight which won the the Women’s Elite Eights at the 2014 Henley Women’s Regatta.

      It made me laugh that Agecroft RC were not mentioned ONCE in this article even though Becca and Zak were both developed exclusively on our WCS program by Hamish Burell over the last five years - not by Chris Jackman and Charles Green and certainly not by Manchester Uni or Manchester Met (neither have ever rowed as the Uni). You guys should be working for Pravda with that attention to detail.
