CONGRATULATIONS Greg Searle for winning Silver Medal and to Team GB for topping the table

Massive congratulations to Greg Searle, recently interviewed on the Maximise Potential Podcast, for winning his first Silver World Championships medal and to Team GB for winning Gold, pushing Great Britain to the top of the medals table.

Below is an extract taken from the British Rowing webiste with details on their fantastic achievements inspiring people and motivating people to be successful in life:

Anna Watkins and Katherine Grainger played their role as favourites in the women’s double scull final to perfection on New Zealand’s Lake Karapiro to take gold and help boost the Great Britain Rowing Team to the top of the medal table on the closing afternoon of the 2010 World Championships.

The GB men’s eight – in which 38 year-old Greg Searle won his first world championships medal since 1997 – as well as Marcus Bateman and Matt Wells in the men’s double scull added two further silvers bringing the overall tally to five golds, five silver and one bronze medal.

Germany equalled GB on golds but were second on silvers, New Zealand were third overall. Britain also topped the Olympic boats overall medal tally with New Zealand in second.

Of Great Britain’s medals all bar one gold and one silver – won earlier in the week in the Paralympic classes – were won by Olympic boats. 34 British rowers, from the Siemens and Lottery-backed GB squad, will now return to the UK as world championships medallists and 53 rowers are now ranked in the world’s top six – making this regatta Britain’s best World Championships of all-time by any measure.

David Tanner, the GB Rowing Team’s Performance Director, said: “I am very proud of our team. We travelled to the other side of the world and had produced our best World Championships performance ever. It’s a credit to the rowers, the coaches and the back-up team. “In the Olympic classes our four golds, four silvers and a bronze make the right statement on the way to the 2012 Games.

“Our approach for these Championships is that they are the start of the 2011 Olympic qualifying season and after a short break we will pick up that mission again with London in our sights”.
