GB Rowing Selection for Jessica Read 29 April 2019

Year 12 Bedford Modern School student and talented sportswoman Jessica Read is among the 33 rowers selected to represent Great Britain at the Munich Junior Regatta on 4-5 May 2019.

This annual event takes place on the Olympic Regatta Course in Munich during the first weekend of May and is the leading European high-performance regatta for junior rowers. The event attracts more than 1000 participants from 15 countries each year.

Prior to her selection, Jessica completed the GB Rowing Team Junior Trials process, beginning with an assessment in Boston, Lincolnshire in November and then again in February, with a further spring assessment at the end of March.

BMS Director of Rowing, Mark Bavington, said: “Jess has produced an incredible set of results this year to become one of the best female junior scullers in the country. It is exceptionally pleasing to see a home-grown talent come through our Year 9 rowing programme to competing in a Team GB crew. Jess is still only in Year 12, the sky is the limit to what she can achieve and every member of BMSBC will be supporting her along the way.”
