RA reported as follows:

The duo, from Perth and Melbourne respectively, did not lose a race throughout the regatta and today walked away with a gold medal in Tokyo on the final day of the 2019 World Rowing Junior Championships.

“We’ve training for the last two years to try and achieve this, so it’s a really special moment,” said West Australian Henriques.

“The dream would now be to represent Australia – both at U23 level and then ultimately at the senior level,” he added.

Rowing Australia Deputy Performance Director, Jaime Fernandez said, “Congratulations to Hamish and Harry for a fantastic 2019 Junior Worlds campaign. They, alongside coach Jamie Hewlett, have not only performed consistently throughout the week to deliver gold in the A-Final, but have been a standout crew from the point of selection. The crew’s potential was obvious, however a good deal has to align and go well throughout the campaign for an amazing result like this to be assured.

By the hallway mark, Henriques and Fox were out in front, leaving it to Germany and Italy to duke it out for silver and bronze. As the crews approached the final 250 metres, Australia upped their rating to 39 to hold off a late challenge from Germany who in turn were trying to get ahead of Italy. Australia went to 41 strokes to cross the line and take gold, while Germany took silver and Italy bronze.
