Cambridge University Women's Boat Club are well represented in the Great Britain squad for the Rowing World Cup regatta in Poland.

Three former members of the squad have been selected in a range of crews to take part in the event in Poznan from June 21 to 23.

Imogen Grant will race with Eleanor Piggott in the lightweight women's double scull having narrowly missed out on a medal at the European Championships two weeks ago, when they finished fourth.

Two-time Blue Holly Hill will make her return to international racing this year in one of two fours entered for the competition, alongside Sam Courty, Polly Swann and Annie Withers.

Swann is racing for the for GB again for the first time since winning silver in the eight at the Rio Olympics.

She said: "I'm a little bit nervous because this is my first international race since 2016 but hopefully my past experiences with the GB Rowing Team will get me over the line as well as the other brilliant girls alongside me in the four."

Oonagh Cousins, who learnt to row at Cambridge University and rowed in CUWBC's victorious Blondie crew in 2017, has been selected in the GB women's pair with Anastasia Posner.

Cox Henry Fieldman flies the flag for Cambridge University Boat Club in the men's eight, after their silver medal at the European Championships.
