British Rowing Records for King’s Rowers

A huge congratulations to Maple U (Year 10), who has recently broken two British Records on the indoor rowing machine. Maple now holds the record for the Four Minute event (1100 metres) and the Half Marathon (21097 metres in 1 Hour 36:44.3 Min:Sec).

Maple is a current British Champion on the Rowing machine and joins Alice B (FF) in holding two British Records, between them they have one third of all the records for their age group.

Speaking about her achievement, Mr Jim Chalmers, Head of Rowing at King’s added, “Maple’s news is very impressive. Like many pupils, she is so committed to rowing and the time and effort she has put into training has clearly paid off. Well Done Maple.  Both Maple and Alice’s records are inspiring and we suspect that they are targeting even more and wish them both well in their efforts.”
