A Shrewsbury High School Sixth Form pupil has been selected to become a member of the GB Rowing Start programme. Jemima Gould endured a tough selection process and is one of one the youngest girls on the scheme. Jemima has also been elected deputy head girl at Shrewsbury High School, where she is part of the Boat Club. The Rowing Start training will run alongside her school commitments in the evenings and at weekends.
Jemima said, “I’m so excited to have been chosen and can’t wait to start training and building on what I’ve already learnt here at Shrewsbury. It’s going to be a very busy few years… but I’m definitely up for the challenge!”
