  • Gloucester-Hartpury quad triumphs at Henley

    The Gloucester-Hartpury crew of Alice Bowyer, Charlotte Hodgkins-Byrne, Flo Pickles and Jessica Newson with fellow Gloucester rower Beth Rodford.
    Gloucester-Hartpury scooped its first ever title at British rowing's premier event - Henley Royal Regatta - as the Under-18s girls quad bounced back from a nasty crash to claim glory.
    On the morning of the final, the crew of Alice Bowyer, Charlotte Hodgkins-Byrne, Jessica Newson and Flo Pickles crashed with a moored boat and snapped three oars in their warm-up row.
    Luckily, they all escaped uninjured and if they were shaken by the crash, they didn’t show it, recording a comfortable four-length victory to scoop the Diamond Jubilee Challenge cup - a new trophy awarded for the first time in 2014 for the winning Under-18s female crew in the competition's 175th year.

    And Sports Minister Helen Grant was on site at the Gloucester-Sharpness canal club to lend her support as part of her tour of the city’s sporting facilities.
    Touring the facilities alongside Gloucester MP Richard Graham, the Minister was impressed with the plans for the £1.5million development, a build which will provide top-class rowing and canoeing facilities and potentially produce Olympic champions of the future.
