The Men’s Quadruple Sculls (M4x) team of Harry Leask, George Bourne, Matt Haywood and Tom Barras produced their best race of the season to win Silver, finishing less than a second behind champions Poland.

“We didn’t have the best start to the season but thankfully we’ve got used to being in the boat now, and the results speak for themselves. It’s absolutely amazing to be back on the podium again,” Harry said, summing up the race. Matt added that having the Olympic Silver medal-winning experience of Harry and Tom in the boat had been invaluable.

This is one of the best results for Great Britain in this particular boat class and is likely to be one of the best results ever by an OT in rowing. 

George has an exciting time ahead of him in the two year run-up to the Paris Olympics.
