We'd like to congratulate our talented oarswoman Molly Harding for winning silver in the Final at the World Junior Championships in Rio in August, in her coxless womens quad, along with Anna Thornton and Kyra Edwards from Nottingham and Suzannah Duncan from Tideway Scullers.
 
The quad won both its heats and came four seconds behind Germany and two seconds in front of the USA.
 
Molly was selected for the World Championships last year but had to pull out due to Injury. However it just shows that endurance pays off -  her dreams came true this year and she had a fantastic experience in Rio. The silver medal was the icing on the cake for her.
 
The Championships doubled as an Olympic test event and 36 British rowers were selected, part of a 50-strong overall delegation. They got to experience racing on the spectacular Lagoa Rodrigo de Freita, just ten minutes from Ipanema beach with a spectacular backdrop of mountains, the Tijuca Forest and the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue at Corcovado.
 
Many thanks also to Marlow coach Bret King. 
 
This is Molly's last year as a junior at Marlow Rowing Club and she wants  to 'put something back into the club' by helping out with some coaching herself.
