Rowers go international

The Royal Netherlands Rowing Federation has selected three Argo rowers to represent the Netherlands in international competitions. Wageningen rowers Linda Verbeek and Jorna Arisz will row this weekend in the Hügel regatta in Germany. Linda Verbeek, chosen as Wageningen sports woman of the year recently, is optimistic. ‘I’m hoping secretly for second place. If we do well we’ll probably go to the World cup competition in Munich in six weeks.’ The third rower is Peter Vos who will go to the World cup competition in England in the last week of May, in preparation for the World Championship in Japan. / RK
