Richmond Park Academy’s Regan family take rowing world by storm

Categories: East Sheen,East Sheen News,Sports

Three siblings from the same family are putting clear water between themselves and their competition in their rowing exploits this year. The East Sheen based Regan family boast three national standard rowers, 16-year-old Finn, 15-Year-old Emilia and 13-year-old Indy.

Finn and Emilia both won gold rowing for the J16 Great Britain squad against France this week. Finn successfully competed in the quadruple sculls while Emilia came out on top in the women’s eight. This follows on from Finn and Indy’s success last year where Indy coxed his brother’s J15 coxed quadruple scull gold medal in the Junior British Rowing Championships in 2018.

Richmond Park Academy’s Director of Sport, Tim Clifford said, “we are immensely proud of Finn, Emilia and Indy. Their attitude to their sport is an inspiration to all students at Richmond Park Academy and we remain committed to giving them all of the help the school can offer to support their success.”
