Tom Hall earns gutsy Silver medal at Maadi

Congratulations to Tom Hall who rowed the race of his life to earn himself a Silver Medal in the U18 Single Scull at the NZSS Rowing Championships, at Lake Karapiro. 

Tactically Tom rowed the perfect race. Coming through the 1000m mark Tom was sitting in the middle of the pack but it was clear that his overall boat speed was faster than the rest of the boats around him, except for the eventual winner from St. Peter’s. With about 400m to go Tom started to ramp up his speed and in a mad dash for the line he managed to sneak his bow ahead of the Hauraki sculler to claim the silver medal!
