A recruitment drive at this year’s freshers’ fayre has paid off for Swansea University’s rowing club who have won a host of medals at the two competitions that they have entered.
In November, Swansea travelled to Bristol to take part in the Bristol Head Race.
The men’s team claimed the first podium of the season winning a bronze medal, but the women’s side could not match that, finishing fourth.
Then in December, Swansea collected three more medals at the Welsh Indoor Championships.
The women’s team won gold and the men’s picked up a bronze, while Dani Martin-Taylor was Swansea’s best solo performer with a silver in the women’s 500m sprint competition.
Swansea are now preparing hard for the upcoming Bucs fours and eights Head contest, as well as the much anticipated Welsh Varsity Boat Race at the end of the academic year.
