08 September 2019

University of Bath sporting scholar Laura Macro continued her excellent 2019 form onto the international stage as she won gold at the EUSA (European University Sports Association) Rowing Championships in Sweden.

The Sport & Exercise Science student, who is supported by a Santander Sports Scholarship, won an exciting lightweight women’s single scull final by four-tenths of a second as she beat Poland’s Klaudia Pankratiew to the title.

Macro, who has also won gold at both the BUCS and Henley Women’s regattas this year, said: “A huge thanks to everyone in the GB Universities Rowing Team for the help and making me feel part of such an awesome team!”

Dan Harris, who coaches Macro on the GB Rowing Team Start programme at the University of Bath, was in Greece over the weekend with students Becky Wilde and Zara Mulholland as they made their British debuts at the European U23 Championships.

After winning their heat, Dual Career athlete Wilde and Santander Sporting Scholar Mulholland – who study Sport & Social Science and Civil Engineering respectively – placed a fine fifth in the women’s double final.
