National Indoor Rowing Championships
On Friday 11th March 2016, our rowing team took part in the National Indoor Rowing Championships at Lee Valley. The whole squad did fantastically well…each of them absolutely smashing their Personal Bests.
The star of the day was Amber Bryan, out of approximately 250 rowers in her category, she won the silver medal! Ditton Park Academy may have just found their first Olympic Athlete!!
Congratulations to the whole squad; Ben Holmes, Sophie Scattergood, Noraiz Ahmed, Tyrese Panue, Dylan Clarke, Namira Kashif, Madison Oram and Amber Bryan.
