Bronze at World Champs

We won a bronze medal in the men’s eight final at the 2011 world rowing championship a few days ago.  It was an exciting race with a very close finish between 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place.  It is a great feeling to be able to walk away from the regatta with a medal after all the work we put in this year.  The last few days have been spent unwinding from the tension and stress of racing and just enjoying Bled and cheering on our crews who would not finish until the last day of the regatta.  Many Canadian boats performed well earning medals and Olympic qualification spots.  Next stop is London for a 3 day Olympic orientation trip.  I’m looking forward to seeing the city for the first time and getting a chance to see the rowing venue ahead of the Olympics next July.  After that it’s back home for a week to catch up with family and friends and then back to Victoria to start training again.  I definitely felt the love from back home during the week.  Thanks to my friends and family for all the ongoing support.

    Hi Jeremiah

    Well done! After all the efforts a bronze medal for you and you team mates, this is more than you (and family/friends) may have expected one year ago.
    A wise man over here in Germany said that the happier one of the silver and bronze medalists is the bronze medal winner – he snatched away the medal from the fourth. The unhappier one is the silver medalist – he just failed to win the gold medal.
    And for both there is still room for more next year ……..

    Keep on trying! We are happy you enjoy it – you’re somewhat famous, at least one of the very few who were live on TV ;o)

    Take care and enjoy the time with Ethan in Cobourg.
    Best regards from Gabi & Ruediger, Krefeld / Germany
