Queen’s Rowing Club members and Sports Bursary recipients, Tiernan Oliver (LLB Law with French), Peter Gillanders (Dentistry), Kevin Coughlan (MSc Durability of Structures) and Charles Cunningham (MSc Psychology of Performance Enhancement in Sport and Health) are setting off to compete at the 8th European Universities Rowing Championship, which will be organised in Poznan, Poland between September 5 – 8, 2013. This will cap off a busy year for Queen’s Rowing following the success at the British University Championships and Irish Nationals picking up 5 medals along the way. This strong coxless 4 group will be hoping to compete well against 14 Universities from across Europe. 11 crews from the UK will be represented at the Championships with Queen’s University Belfast the only crew from Ireland taking to the water.
