Chris Hearn has proven his indoor rowing prowess via three key indoor rowing championships spanning UK and Europe.

In December, Chris entered the British Indoor Championships (BRIC) held at the Olympic Park Velodrome, winning silver in both the 2K and 500m V35 events.

Continuing his success, Chris was the sole Milton Keynes Rower entered at the European Indoor Championships in Copenhagen, Denmark, impressively winning bronze for his debut distance of 1K. in the 30-39 lightweight category.

Back in the UK a week later, Chris gained gold at the English Indoor Championships, Manchester for both the 2K with a PB of 6.41.9 and the 500m equalling his PB.

Chris is new to rowing and joined Milton Keynes Rowing Club via its successful Learn to Row Course held each year.

This year’s Learn to Row course is scheduled for Monday 22nd April at Caldecotte Lake, with an available 2 hour Taster Session on Saturday 6th April. No rowing experience is required, so if you fancy a new challenge this year head to the club‘s website to find out more.
