Our own Maddy Badcott is in the oxford women’s crew line up
“I first tried rowing at the Lea in summer 2009 when I did one of the LYR summer learn to row courses, although I didn’t actually start training properly until autumn 2011! I think the first race I did was Hampton Head in Jan 2012, although the first medal I won on the water was in Lea Spring of that year. I live in Islington, about 30min from the club by bus- I still have (fond) memories of getting the night bus to 5.30am training sessions twice a week as a junior!
I definitely still consider myself a member of the Lea, I am so grateful for all the support I’ve been given over the years from the wonderful people at the club and am proud to have grown up on the water there- I had a lot of fun rowing with the women’s squad over last summer and hope they’ll be willing to have me back for a few weeks this year.”
