Meet our Olympians

THE council didn’t see fit to welcome them home with a civic reception, but you can meet our local Olympians at the New Norfolk Rowing Club’s summer regatta this Saturday. The program starts at 9am with a long distance eight race. A barbecue and refreshments will be on offer from 10.30.

The event of the day is the Sharland Sculls – a prestigious 500m race with a long history. Scheduled for an 11.30am start, this event is expected to feature a who’s who of Tasmanian rowing Olympians, including Simon Burgess, Anthony Edwards (pictured), Kerry Hore, Scott Brennan and Cameron Wurf. This will provide a great opportunity to meet some of our Beijing Olympians, including local resident Edwards, who has rowed at four Olympic games and is now settled at Molesworth.

The program will conclude with a christening of new boats at 2pm. The New Norfolk Rowing Club is in Rocks Rd.
