The British Rowing team has been named for the 2019 World Rowing Championships.

 

The 2019 World Rowing Championships doubling as the main qualification event for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games is to be held in Linz-Ottensheim, Austria from 25 August through to 1 September, the championships have attracted nearly 1200 athletes from 80 nations. This includes the biggest number of para-rowers ever at a World Rowing Championships. Of the para-rowing boat classes, the para PR1 men’s single sculls has the most entries with 27 nations taking part. The para PR1 women’s single sculls is also impressive with 14 countries entered.

 

Among those competing for Great Britain’s para squad will be Ben Pritchard, who will be heading to his first World Championships to race in the men’s PR1 single sculls. Pritchard has been given the nod following a fantastic season which saw him take home a bronze medal on his World Cup debut.

 

On his selection, Pritchard said: “I’ve really enjoyed this season. Being selected to represent Great Britain at the World Championships is the cumulation of two years of hard work.

 

“I’m looking forward to competing in Austria, seeing the progress that my coach Tom and I have made since Poznan and hopefully gaining a qualification spot for the Paralympic Games next year.”
