Back at Barrow

More Shark River Race Action

The Sharks were represented at the Barrow-on-Soar Race in Leicestershire, by two paddlers from Loughborough Sharks.

Making his first appearance for the Club and his first ever River Race was James Cross, who paddled the 5k course in a slalom boat and was the first Under 23 home and 21st over all. As he paddled in a slalom boat he will get first place in the Under 23 Wavehopper Series. Well done James


Grant Underwood was racing for the first time since injury his leg whilst Fencing, it was also his first race since last years European Championships, he came 12th over all in the River Race, although obviously a long way to go to get back to his previous form, great to see him back in competing.


Next Saturday, The Sharks will be racing at Bucklers Hard near Southampton.
