Rowers third

Two young members of rowing club Argo came third at the Netherlands Indoor Rowing Championship. Second-year rower Jochem van der Hout came third in the heavyweight senior B, as did Jolmer van der Sluis in the lightweight men’s category. The championships took place on 10 December in Amsterdam. A total of nine Argo members competed in the two-kilometre races. It was dry indoor rowing, where technique is not so important and the weather has no influence. The races are important as coaches from the national rowing federation are on the lookout for new talent. / YdH
