Champion GB rower salutes sporting achievements across the school
World champion GB rower Imogen Walsh was the guest of honour at this year’s Sports Awards, celebrating sporting talent and achievement across the Senior School at a glittering ceremony, attended by students,, their parents and their teachers.
The evening began with reports delivered by sports scholars from year 7 to year 13, covering sports as diverse as rowing, rugby, trampolining and dance alongside athletics, netball,rounders and hockey.. All sports had flourished and the level of commitment from students was clear. The success story of the night, however, was the progress of rowing. From a handful of aspiring rowers who showed interest after a chance opportunity arose with Dulwich College two years ago, there are now just short of 40 girls involved with half of these in the latest year 9.
Hard work clearly lies ahead for the rowers, like all aspiring athletes, but, as the guest of honor Imogen Walsh testified, courage and confidence are like muscles: you have to test and challenge them to make them stronger.
