GFS alumnus James Wright '18 was selected by USRowing to participate in the 2020 Under 23 Men's and Women's National Team Selection Camps this summer.
Congratulations to GFS alumnus James Wright '18, who was selected by USRowing to participate in the 2020 Under 23 Men's and Women's National Team Selection Camps this summer! While the COVID-19 pandemic has caused the cancellation of this year's international rowing schedule, USRowing still recognized James as one of the nation's best 'under 23-year-old rowers," which would have earned him a spot on the Under 23 National Team that would have competed at the 2020 World Rowing Championships this August in Bled, Slovenia.
"While understandably the pandemic has put a halt to the 2020 international racing schedule, USRowing wants to recognize those athletes who have earned invitations to our 2020 Under-23 National Team selection camps," said Matt Imes, USRowing High-Performance Director. "While these athletes won't get the opportunity to represent the U.S. this summer, they make up an incredibly important part of our national team development program. We congratulate each of them on being selected for the camps and look forward to many of them representing Team USA in the future." Congratulations to James on the honor!
