Cameron McKenzie and Tom Bryan once again proved that they are one of Britain's fastest under 16 double sculling crews. They competed in the Junior Sculling Regatta at Dorney Lake, the venue for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

With most of Britain's top crews attending, Tom and Cameron came 4th out of the 25 entries in the 1900m time trial, to qualify for the A final.

In a thrilling final, the race was won by the crew from the Isle of Wight, namely Shanklin Sandown rowing club. In second place was Bewl Bridge, with South Africa and Northampton fighting for third place. The South African crew from Johannesburg just pipped Northampton by half a length for the bronze medal. This result will give Tom and Cameron confidence they can win a medal at the upcoming National Schools Regatta in two weeks' time.
