In May 2012, HTBS’s Tim Koch published a 20-page booklet about W.D. Kinnear of Kensington RC, a club that later would combine with Auriol RC to become what is now Auriol Kensington RC, Tim’s club located at Hammersmith Bridge. In the summer of 2012, Auriol Kensington RC celebrated the 100-year anniversary of Kinnear’s Olympic gold medal in the single sculls at the Stockholm Games. Tim’s W.D. Kinnear – World Amateur Sculling Champion is an entertaining, well-written booklet about one of Great Britain’s best scullers during the beginning of the 1910s. During this period, Kinnear was, Tim writes, ‘world class’.
As the kind gentleman he is, Tim has decided to make his booklet available online for free for HTBS’s readers. You can enjoy reading Tim’s booklet by clicking on the following link:
