Islanders triumph at Indoor Rowing event


Two islanders have won Gold medals at the Welsh Indoor Rowing Championships.

Sophie Hooper beat seven other competitors in the Women's 2k category in the event on November 25th. She was also second in the Women's 500m.

Meanwhile, Zoë Hitchens finished first of 42 entrants in the Women's Student Fresher category on behalf of Cardiff University Rowing Club.

Sophie, who makes silver and gold jewellery on Scilly, also won Gold in the 1k event at the Devon Indoor Championships in September.

Elsewhere, Helen Pearce, who works at the Council on St Mary's, recently set a British record for indoor rowing in the 6000m in her weight and age range.
