Coussens strikes gold

AN Ancastle Green sculler was part of the GB men’s quadruple scull crew that won gold at the World Rowing Championships in Rotterdam.

Henley sculler Hugo Coussens — who attends Durham University — along with Oliver Varley, Matthew Curtis and Gavin Horsburgh overcame a concerted challenge from Germany before pushing through to take the title.

Coussens, Varley and Curtis were all making their debuts at World Championships level, while Horsburgh was stepping up to the U23 ranks after being part of the quad that won a first-ever gold for GB at last year’s World Junior Championships in Rio.
