Nash and Louloudis underline potential with world under-23 title
RISING stars George Nash and Constantine Louloudis claimed the men's pairs title at the under-23 rowing World Championships in Amsterdam.
The duo, former junior men's four gold medallists, are viewed as long-term members of the British senior team having impressed at the recent World Cup regatta in Lucerne.
They are expected to be reserves for Andy Triggs Hodge and Peter Reed for the forthcoming World Championships and having both been rivals at this year's Boat Race, are tipped to potentially feature somewhere in next year's Olympic squad.
GB Rowing performance director David Tanner is delighted with their progress and the performance of single sculler Katherine Copland, who won the women's lightweight title in Holland.
"Of course I'm very pleased with the golds but this team also contains a group of rowers who finished between fourth and eighth here, who are all young and who have a bright future," he said.
"There is no doubt that we have talent for the future across all disciplines."
