This weekend saw the Diamond Jubilee Rowing Championships taking place at Eton Dorney, and with members of Team GB’s London 2012 rowing squad returning to race in their club colours, competition was tough. Wallingford Rowing Club rose to the challenge winning two pennants for the fastest lightweight crews and also taking home two silver medals. On Saturday Lottie Burgess and Kathryn Twyman raced in the Women's doubles, winning a silver medal by finishing second overall and taking the pennant for fastest lightweight crew in a closely fought race. On Sunday they were joined by Brianna Stubbs and Caroline Greves to race in the Women's Quads. After a strong performance in the time trial and semi-finals, the crew went on to push the winning heavyweight Leander crew to less than a length margin, taking the silver medal and pennant for fastest lightweight crew. Off the water, Wallingford Rowing Club's Alice Walker took part helping out on the Young Person's Panel (YPP) and some of her work included interviewing Olympic coach Jurgen Grobler and rowers Greg Searle and Pete Reed.
