Selection trials: April 13 to 22, Sydney International Regatta Centre, Penrith

With the 2007 Australian Rowing Championships now over attention turns to the Selection Trials which are being held at the Sydney International Regatta Centre, Penrith 13 - 22 April.

With over 150 athletes invited to compete in the trials for selection into the Senior A and U23 squads, competition will be fierce.

The 2007 World Rowing Championships, held in Munich in August, are an important stepping stone on the “Road to Beijing”. They mark a chance for Australia, along with all the other nations competing, to qualify boats for the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008.

In 2006, following another successful international season with two crews winning at the World Rowing Championships, Australia finished the year as the number one nation in Olympic boat classes. This is a title that Australia will be looking to maintain in the lead up to Beijing.

Australia’s prospects are looking excellent and this was only reinforced by strong performances at the Australian Rowing Championships in Nagambie, Victoria. The women’s squad is moving from strength to strength ahead of the selection trials, with Queensland’s Pippa Savage at the forefront of the proceedings.

Savage, who has not been part of the Australian set up before, walked away from the Australian Rowing Championships with 3 titles to her name. Along the way she teamed with Tasmania’s Kerry Hore to topple Liz Kell and Brooke Pratley, the reigning World Champions in the Women’s Double Scull. This result shows the depth in the squad at present and sounds a firm warning to other nations.

The men’s squad is also reaching full strength and will provide some selection headaches for the selectors in Sydney.  Although there will be some selection difficulties, these are good problems to have approaching the international season.  The increased rivalry has improved training times and race performances and this can only be good for Australian rowing.

2007 Australian Rowing Championships — Victoria reigns supreme in King's Cup

Victoria has won their 65th King’s Cup after a dominant display at Nagambie Lakes, Victoria.

Cheered on by a large and parochial crowd, the Victorian crew finished strongly to take the race from NSW and Western Australia.

Entering the King’s Cup as raging hot favourites, the Victorians ran the race to script and were led home by stroke Drew Ginn and returning 5 times Olympic champion James Tomkins.

Tomkins, who has now won 15 King’s Cup races, had an extremely successful week and was pleased with his return to rowing at the top level.

“It’s the premier event in Australia and it’s great to be back rowing with the mighty Victoria”, Tomkins said. “It’s the great thing about the regatta finishing with the interstate regatta and being able to pull on the big V and represent the state.”

Victoria was also successful in the Queen’s Cup, with NSW and Western Australia again finishing in the minor placings.

Victoria also won the Women’s Youth Coxed Eight, the Men’s Single Scull and walked away from the interstate regatta with the Rowing Australia Cup as the champion state.
