8:40am Friday 16th August 2013 in Sport
TWO young Evesham club stars scooped medals at the European Junior Championships’ Coupe de la Jeunesse in Switzerland.
After five days of gruelling trials, Liam Tustin (left), 17, and James Waterhouse, 18, were selected to row for Great Britain in the eight and pair respectively on the Rotsee Lake, Lucerne.
Tustin, who attends the Royal Grammar School Worcester, raced against Italy on two days in high temperatures, winning the gold after finishing with silver the first time. Evesham High School’s Waterhouse and Will England, of Monmouth, won bronze medals in their two races behind Italy and Switzerland on both occasions.
GB won eight golds, seven silvers and five bronzes to lift the team trophy.
