Britain takes inaugural adaptive world cup gold

Britain has won the inaugural world cup race for  adaptive rowers – the mixed adaptive four- sponsored by Siemens at the world cup in Amsterdam.

Coxed by Tamsin Cottle, the four which  includes Naomi Riches, Vicki Hansford, Alan Crowther and Alastair Mckean used their mid-race pace to win after the Dutch got a flying start.

"It feels pretty special to have won the
first world cup gold", said Mckean of the historic win afterwards.

"I think it’s a sign of things to come because there is so much more we can achieve", added Hansford.

The crew is coached by Chad King in a set-up which is managed by Louise Kingsley.
