York City's Sally Downing is currently representing Team GB at the World Junior Rowing Championships in Rio de Janeiro.
Sally is rowing bow in the double scull having been selected to represent her country following a strong performance in final trials. This would not have been possible without huge dedication from Sally and the support of her family, friends and coaches, many of whom have travelled to Brazil to cheer!
On the opening day, Sally and her crewmate Rosalind Wilson finished second in their heat, qualifying them for today's semi final.
In the semi final, the GB crew again advanced to the A final, finishing third.
They now compete in the A final at 10.35 Rio time.
On Sunday 12th July, YCRC hosted the annual Rotary Club charity dragon boats races.

Thanks also to the volunteers from YCRC without whom the event could not run.
