World-class rowers

Two Wageningen students, Peter Vos and Linde Verbeek, will be taking part in the world rowing championships in Japan next week. Vos will be rowing in the Dutch eight and Verbeek in the women’s quadruple scull. Argo, the student rowing club, says it is unusual to have two of its members going to the world championships. Racing committee member Hanneke Merkx: ‘They both started rowing four years ago and they’ve already reached the world-class level. We’re very proud of them.’ / KV

There are special rowing times for international students at Argo every weekend. See
