2022 world under 23 championships

The 2022 World Under 23 Championships were conducted with the World Under 19 Championships at Varese Italy finishing on the weekend of 30th and 31st July 2022.

Some of the crews also raced at World Cup 3 at Lucerne. Of note was a brave performance by the men's eight which subsequently found to be stricken with COVID 19 and the two members of the women's four joining their senior colleagues in the eight to take gold.

Deputy Performance Director, Jaime Fernandez OLY, said, “It was an exciting end to the Under 23 component of this regatta. We managed to add two bronze medals to our tally and both the Women’s Coxless Four and Men’s Eight crews showed a lot of courage in their respective races to overcome injuries and illness to make it onto the podium. Our single scullers also showed a lot of heart and determination to race as well as they did and improve each race.” 

Fernandez further added and commented, “The athletes will now head home for some rest; however, we obviously want them to build on their performances, experience and growth, continue to learn from the opportunity and progress, ideally setting themselves up for the future. With many on the team still eligible for U23s again, we hope this is just the start and that they are casting an eye to their long-term future in the sport as well.”
