Henley Success for Balliol Old Boy

July 5, 2010 in Captain's Blog, John Blacker Society

Jonny Mathews, ex St.Pauls, Balliol and Isis rower, was part of the 1829 Boat Club VIII+ which has won this year’s Thames Challenge Cup at the Henley Royal Regatta.

The Thames Challenge cup is a club event open to all athletes who are not seeking selection into their national squads or who have competed internationally previously. Although being the lowest rated club event at HRR the standard is still exceptional, the highest level event for non professional or semi-professional oarsmen; winning is therefore is a massive achievement and we are all proud of Jonny.
