Sydney Pair Take Silver
With two entries in the men’s pair, SRC was represented in both Australian boats. The No. 1 boat featuring Spencer Turrin and Alex Lloyd, while the number 2 boat saw UTS’ James Medway and SRC’s Josh Hicks pair up. Spencer and Alex cruised their way into the A final, and drew the lane next to the top ranking “Kiwi Pair”. While chasing down the Kiwis was always going to be a difficult task, the Aussie pair held their own, pushing away from the rest of the field and finishing with a well deserved silver medal. Josh Hicks and James Medway drew lane 6 in the B-Final. The Harvard graduates looked to make their move at the 1500 metre mark and had pulled into first place, however with the finish line in sight, it was Germany’s second crew, along with New Zealand’s, that made the surge in the last 250m to take first and second, with Australia in third. In the B-Final of the M2X, David Watts and Chris Morgan finished in 2nd place. Click here for Rowing Australia’s full story.
