7am. Friday 28th February 2020. 16 adults. 26 children.
It must be NJIRC Day!
Yes last Friday saw pupils from both Warrington Youth Rowing and Mersey Youth Rowing head off on the train to London to compete at the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships.
And what a day it was. An early start at Liverpool Lime Street and Warrington Bank Quay respectively, the two teams met, put on their brand new kit and headed to Euston. From here we headed over to Kings Cross to board the train to Stratford International where we walked to the Copper Box Arena. Joining hundreds of young people to compete in lots of different races throughout the day.
Everyone did absolutely brilliantly – representing their schools and WYR and MYR respectively. Many of our young people got well into the Top 10 and we even got a medal in Year 8 Boys category with Mersey’s Kevin Dos Santos coming in a fantastic third place!
Check out the highlights of the day in this video.
HUGE well done everyone and many thanks to all the volunteers for helping make the trip happen.
This was an experience that everyone will remember and cherish for a very long time.
