Sights and sounds of WRJC 2011
We take a look at some of the sights and scenes of the 2011 WRJC, including:
– A gang of photo-friendly Russians
– Some slightly confused Germans
– A friendly face dropping by
– And a whole host of Smurfs
The permanently-smiling volunteers of the 2011 WRJC!
Holly Nixon celebrates winning Ireland’s first ever medal at junior championship level.
You can almost feel the pain…
Nothing unusual about this photograph of the German team celebrating yet another gold medal…
… but hang on! LOOK AT THEIR FEET!
A familiar face drops by to say hello!
This Russian crew won’t be stopped as they carry their boat down to the water…
… well, not before asking to pose for a better picture, anyway!
One thing WRJC 2011 chairman and Olympic gold medallist Ben Hunt-Davis wasn’t expecting from the championships; to be dressed up like a giant Smurf by the end!
Anyone fancy a guess at who this colourful fellow is supporting?
The agony and the ecstasy.
It’s nice to see the Czech team have gone for matching crew-cuts, but how do the coaches tell them apart?
These London Youth Rowing volunteers enjoy their day watching the rowers of the future from the British Rowing tent…
… but it wasn’t all about the elite athletes; there were also British Rowing taster sessions to get newcomers out onto the water. Could these youngsters actually be the future rowers of the future?
