Callum Starts Season With U19 Scottish Indoor Win

GalleonCallum McBrierty (S6) began the new rowing season in style when he won the Under 19 category in the Scottish Indoor Rowing Championships at Heriot-Watt University.

He not only won the 2000m race, in a time of 6:14.6, but he produced a faster time than all of the seniors competing, including foreign competitors from as far afield as Russia. Had he produced the same time in November’s British Indoor Rowing Championships he would have won the silver medal.

“I’m pretty pleased because a lot of people had trained specifically for that event,” said Callum, who was inducted into the East of Scotland Institute of Sport last month as one of its first rowers.
