St Ives duo Sam Hasted and Rory Crouch enjoyed medal success at the Junior Inter-Regional Regatta last Saturday.

The Junior 15 double-sculls duo were part of the Eastern Region team for the event at the National Sports Centre in Nottingham.

Hasted and Crouch finished second to West Midlands in their heat over the 1,500m course and clocked the third-fastest time of the day to advance to the ‘A’ final.

And they were even more impressive in the showpiece race when again finishing second to earn silver medals.

They were only a second behind the triumphant West Region pairing despite seeing their preparations for the event hampered by flooding to the River Great Ouse in recent weeks.
