British Rowing Championships, 2011

Chris Jillings reports:

Congratulations to Clio for coming home from the weekend's racing with two Silver medals!

Her GB Junior quad raced in a straight final for the Women's 4x, but were dealt a lesson from the gun by a powerful Nottingham crew. They were, however, comfortably the next best boat.

At the end of the day, in the finale Women's 8+ event, her GB Junior boat cruelly had gold snatched from their grasp as their half-length lead evaporated with 500m to go, when one of her team-mates caught a whopper! They mounted a spirited attack but lost by half a length - boo hoo!
