SHIPLAKE COLLEGE’S Marek Lapham has been selected to represent GB U18s in Munich next month.

Lapham, 17, was selected from 20 aspiring rowers who spent five days at the recent GB Spring Assessment held at the National Watersports Centre in Nottingham.

On the first day there were trials in pairs before four days of seat trials consisting of between 16 and 20 kilometres a day.

Ultimately Lapham, along with nine other rowers was selected to represent GB in Germany on May 5.

Harry Vardigans, a fellow Shiplake pupil just missed out on a place in that squad.
