CONEL student Lee Driscoll competed at the National Indoor Rowing Championships (NJIRC) last month (Friday 15 March 2019).
Lee competed in the first race of the day, male year 13, 2000m race finishing with a time of nine minutes, thirty one seconds.
The National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships is held annually by London Youth Rowing, where schools and colleges across the UK compete in races of different age groups and distances.
NJIRC took place in the Copper Box Arena in the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for the very first time this year.
Robert Murphy, College Sportsmaker at CONEL said,
“This was a great event run by the London Youth Rowing organisation. This was a great opportunity for all of the students that had been training all year to compete. The students that did attend thoroughly enjoyed the event and it is great that we can take our learners to events like this as an extension to the enrichment sports programme that we run at the college.”
CONEL also had a promotional stand at the event where, this year, some Sports students were carrying out health checks and giving our information, advice and guidance on CONEL courses.
