The Commonwealth Rowing Championships regatta has been organised in the year of the Commonwealth Games since 1986, although rowing is not currently included in the Games themselves, it runs parallel to them. There are moves afoot to include rowing in the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
A 1500m course held at Strathclyde Park, Motherwell over the weekend of 9th and 10th August, two Llandaff members Zak Lee-Green and Jack Thomas have been selected to represent Wales for the Commonwealth Rowing Championships regatta.
Zak has been chosen to race in the lightweight single scull as well as doubling up with Jack Thomas for the lightweight double sculls.
The Commonwealth Rowing Regatta is the highest level of competition in which a rower can represent Wales.
The Wales squad consists of eleven selected rowers and so the inclusion of two Llandaff members is a huge achievement for them and our club.
Zak is currently part of the GB Squad having recently competed in the lightweight single scull at the second Rowing World cup in Aiguebelette, France.
Jack is currently in Cork representing Wales in the Home International Regatta on 26/27 July.
