Thornley withdraws

LEANDER captain Vicky Thornley has withdrawn from next month’s World Rowing Championships in Bulgaria due to injury.

The 30-year-old Olympic silver medallist had already pulled out of the inaugural European Championships that took place earlier this month.

In a statement released this week Thornley said: “Sometimes the desire to be the best overrides the feeling that you may be working a bit too hard and I haven't been able to pull it back.

“It's a really tough decision to make however I've made it with the support of the medical team and my coach.”
