Stamford High School pupil, Charlotte Bolton and her partner Poppy Shipley (both members of the Isle of Ely Rowing Club) were crowned bronze medallists at the British Rowing Junior Championships in the WJ15 x 2 sculling event held at the National Water Sports Centre, Nottingham on 22nd July 2018.
This latest win is the third success for Charlotte in the last few months after securing the title of Womenâ€™s Junior National Rowing Champion with her rowing partner, Poppy Shipley in the 15×2 sculling event on the Olympic Rowing lake at Eton Dorney near Windsor. This was preceded by Charlotte securing third place at the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships held at the Lee Valley Athletics Centre, London in the Year 10 sprint race rowing 1,313 meters in 5 minutes earlier in the year.
In her first year with the GB Rowing Development Programme, Charlotte, is continuing to show talent and great promise for the future. The pairs commitment, devotion and training are certainly paying tremendous dividends.
