Surbiton rowers international success over the summer holidays!

Posted: 11th August 2023

The summer break brought a wave of triumph for Surbiton rowers as they clinched multiple medals, including a world championship title. Among the standout achievements, Izzie K emerged as a World Champion, securing 4 Gold Medals and 3 Silver Medals!

Our J16 4+ (Paloma C, Siobhan S Emily S, Lucia K & Hannah J) were selected to compete for the U16 GB team in an annual match against France – our girls won their race, one of only a handful of GB crews that came away victorious.  

Steffi B competed for Team England at the Home International Regatta in the JW4+ & JW8+ – she gained a silver in the 4+ and an amazing gold in the 8+.  

Emily S competed for Great Britain at the Coupe de La Jeunesse (Europeans) in Amsterdam. Emily won a gold in the JW8+ and a silver in the JW4+ on both days of the event – 4 international medals in total. Flo G our own coach was selected to coach these boats. A fantastic achievement for both of them.  

 Madeleine G (JW4-) and Izzie K(JW8+) competed for Great Britain at the U19 World Rowing Championships at the future Olympic lake in Paris. Madeleine, rowed fantastically to get a silver medal – narrowly missing gold. Izzie K became a World Champion in the 8+ – taking gold in a photo finish with Germany, Romania & the USA.  

The Surbiton rowing community takes immense pride in the accomplishments of these extraordinary athletes, who have not only showcased their skills but also represented the school and country on an international platform. Congratulations all!
