The Army Indoor Rowing Team have recently competed at 2 national events including the Welsh Indoor Rowing Championships (WIRC) in Cardiff, where the team was lucky enough to attend the event for the first time since the World champs in 2020. They then competed in the British Rowing Indoor Championships (BRIC) 6 days later, which unfortunately changed to a fully virtual event. Over these 2 events the team picked up an impressive 49 medals over various disciplines including team relays.

On 22 January 2022, the Scottish Rowing Indoor Championship (SRIC) was again held as a virtual event as a safety precaution. Individuals had to use their units, local gyms, living room and garages to make this possible. The commitment from this team over the Christmas period and new year shows how unbelievable they are with another horde of 30 medals across various events.

The Indoor Rowing season is ending soon with a grandstand finish on the world stage. The group was dreaming of an overseas trip to Hamburg, but this was not to be due to COVID restrictions. This made qualification difficult with only the top 3 entries per continent and category eligible to compete in the finals on 25-26 February 2022. The team’s fate will be decided after the 2 February when the qualification process ends.¬† Good luck everyone!
