Evesham duo win Great Britain call-up
4:06pm Thursday 6th September 2012 in Sport
EVESHAM rower Yasmin Tredell has been selected to be part of the Great Britain Rowing Team for the European Championships in Italy next week, along with her older brother Lance.
Yasmin, 19, a world junior gold medallist, will race in the women's eight while Lance, 24, will compete in the men’s equivalent at the event on Lake Varese.
The Europeans has become a traditional 'baptism' at a top-level championship for new and young GB rowers aspiring to gain selection to the senior squads and this is their first opportunity in the Rio 2016 cycle, with the long selection process soon to start for the 2013 World Championships in Korea next summer.
None of the 47 GB rowers who raced at the 2012 Olympic Games will compete at the event from September 14-16, with the GB team continuing the practice of blooding upcoming talent against leading crews from other nations - many of which will have featured at London 2012.
