Glover and Stanning are finalists in World Rowing Awards
Helen Glover and Heather Stanning are in the running for another major honour after being named as Female Crew of the Year finalists in the 2015 World Rowing Awards.
Staged annually by the World Rowing Federation, FISA, the awards cover five categories and celebrate the personalities who have excelled during the year.
The GB Rowing Team women’s pair of Glover and Stanning are shortlisted after being crowned as World and European Champions, as well as overall World Cup winners, during another unbeaten season.
The other finalists in the Female Crew of the Year category are Australian single scull World Champion Kim Crow, who was also unbeaten in 2015, and the US women’s eight that earned a record tenth straight win at the World Championships.
The list of nominees was formed through a public nomination process and the finalists were then decided by the FISA Council.
Winners will be announced on November 20 and will be presented with their awards the following day at the 2015 World Rowing Coaches Conference gala dinner in Sarasota, Florida.
Glover and Stanning, coached by Robin Williams, have also been shortlisted for the Vitality Team of the Year prize in the Sunday Times and Sky Sports Sportswomen of the Year Awards.
The winner is determined by a public vote and rowing fans can show their support by visiting http://swoty2015.co.uk/vote/team-of-the-year. Voting closes at midday on Monday, October 26.
