trained with a vengeance earlier in the year for what seemed to be
months on end, being
down at Leichhardt Rowing Club at
5.00am several mornings a week ahead
of the National championships in March. He did particularly well
in the Under 16s single scull at the nationals, coming 5th in the
semi-finals. He then
won the National B final which was contested by rowers who missed out
in the top 4 in the semis.
|That's Michael below left, fourth from the top in "Ross Ullo". At that stage he was towards the back of the fleet, but finished strongly and ended up winning the heat.|
|Michael had a short rest
during the off season following the nationals but took up rowing again
in May. Training has now ramped up again, with the Nationals in March
again the main focus. The beginning of the season features quite
a few "head" races. He participated in the Head of the Shoalhaven
in September in a quad with James, Lachlan, and Lloyd. The boys
did very well in the 7km race, recording the fastest time of all 32
entries, beating quite a few eights.
