GB v France J16 team selected

The 2024 GB v France Match will take place in France at Léry-Poses, near Rouen, on Saturday, 13 July 2024


On Sunday, 30 June, 240 athletes competed at the GB Rowing Team J16 trial with the aim of representing their country in the annual GB v France J16 Match. After a brilliant day of competition, 56 athletes from 15 different programs were selected to compete in France on Saturday, 13 July 2024.

The match is a thrilling head-to-head contest over 1500m, offering young rowers and their coaches an opportunity to engage in international competition. With three trophies up for grabs, Men’s, Women’s and Overall, every performance counts in this team competition.

Tim Liversage, GB Rowing Team J16 Team Manager said, “After some fantastic racing at the trials in Nottingham, we are very excited to see what this team can do. We have great representation from large rowing clubs and schools, but also from smaller programmes like Shanklin Sandown and Hexham, who produced some outstanding races. Best of luck to all the crews racing and I hope they relish the opportunity to represent GB in France!”

The GB v France J16 Match represents the first step on the British Rowing Olympic Performance Pathway, potentially paving the way for future Olympic champions within the team.
