Today Erica Holmes flies out to Hungary to represent GB as part of the team for the Coupe de la Jeunesse, taking place in Szeged from 31 July until 2 August.


This year Britain will be represented by 51 rowers in 13 boats this year, and has won on 12 previous occasions, the last time in 2013. 

Erica will be taking up her place in the double scull, alongside Laura McDonald from George Watson's College BC coached by Harry Lyons from Sir William Borlase's BC. 

We'll be keeping our fingers crossed for Erica over the next few days and we're very proud of her. 

Her place in the squad is a reward for the gruelling training and commitment she has shown over the past few years - congratulations from us all Erica!
