London Youth Rowing Competition - Faculty Friday

Rowing 1London Youth Rowing came to the academy last week to deliver an incredibly competitive indoor rowing competition as part of our Faculty Friday inter-house sports.

Pupils went head-to-head using a system that shows a virtual representation of their position in the race based on their output when rowing. This really brought to life the competitive nature of Faculty Friday.

Fine margins

With each hub claiming two lanes in all of the six races, World Studies flew out of the blocks with two early wins that really cemented their place as the hub to beat. Not to go down without a fight, each hub fought back taking one victory each from the following three races.

Winning by fine margins was the order of the day. In race three, for example, Israel came from behind for Active Science to beat Enterprise by 15 metres, undoubtedly spurred on by the unwavering support of his team-mates.

Rowing 2

Team relay

The event came to a close with London Youth Rowing’s marquee challenge - the team relay. With a four minute time limit, teams of four rowers must collectively cover as much distance as possible, paying close attention to their transitions as this is where the race is won and lost.

Both the rowing prowess and team cohesion on show from World Studies saw them pass 890m in the time limit, a whole 30m more than their closest competitor and a worthy victory to finish the day in top spot.

A special mention must go to Creative Voice who competed valiantly and through fatigue with two less rowers than their competitors. Well done to all involved and thanks to London Youth Rowing for hosting the event.
