With a field of over 65 athletes, the 2013 Sherbrooke Canada Games Test Regatta was held on Saturday June 8th in Lac Magog, Quebec.
The PEI Canada Games training Team brought home 2 medals from this event. The women’s Quad won a silver medal. Making this a more impressive win was the fact that Brooke Currie, who currently trains with the McGill Varsity Rowing team, joined her other 3 teammates on the dock for the first time for the race. Other rowers in this event included Lauren Murray, Aleya Quilty and Jaime MacKinnon. Murray trains with the St. FX Varsity Rowing Team in Antigonish, NS.
The Men’s Quad resulted in a Bronze medal and team members are Nathan Gibson, Sam Mallett, Travis Cheverie and Jordan Rose. Gibson and Colby Currie, who is currently training with the Queen’s University Varsity Rowing Team, competed in the men’s double for the first time together and Currie also had a personal best in the men’s single. Coach Mike Gibson was pleased with the team’s results in this pre-games competition. Also travelling to the regatta was Team Manager Ruth Quilty.
