Leander Club in Henley-on-Thames has in an announcement said that the club has just appointed its first female captain. Double Olympic silver medallist Debbie Flood will take over the role as captain at the club on 1 January, 2013, following the three year’s captaincy of Rick Egington, who secured Olympic silver and bronze as a member of the GB men’s eight in Beijing and London.
Debbie Flood said: “It’s a fantastic honour – Leander is my home, it’s where I came of age in rowing, and I’ve carried out my entire senior career within the club”. Read more on Leander’s website.
