Records Tumble at Indoor Rowing!

By Matt Marden - 21/05/2024

The 2024 BSRA Indoor Rowing Championships was held on Monday 20 May at Somerville House in VPAC.

The event was an enormous success, with huge teams from 8 member schools attending to participate. Not only were the teams large, but also their support bases, with the floor filled with student, coach and parent supporters from all Schools. Thank-you to all those who participated, bringing their spirit and energy to the event!

The BSRA Indoor Rowing Championships sets a high benchmark for schoolgirl rowing in Australia, with our member schools bringing their best athletes to contest hardfought individual and team relay events. We celebrate the winners and those on the podium, but we also congratulate all competitors for being in the contest. Many results beyond the podium were incredibly close and we are so proud of all the girls efforts and spirit in competition. So many girls acheived their own personal bests on the night or contributed to a proud team effort – well done girls.

On Monday 20 May, 5 BSRA records were broken: 3 Individual records and 2 Team Relay records.
Some of these records have stood for 20 years and were thought to be unbreakable, yet on Monday we saw incredible athletes setting new standards in the competition.

All results can be found here. Record Holders can be found here.

Special congratulations to record breakers:
