World Champions line-up for GB at Canal Cup

Peter Reed and Andy Hodge will line-up for Great Britain in this week’s E.ON Hanse Canal Cup on the Kiel Canal.

The duo were part of Great Britain’s world champion men’s four at Eton this summer and are fresh back from their first visit to the Olympic venue in Beijing.


They will be joined in the boat by Ben Smith, Alex Gregory, Marcus Bateman, Simon Fieldhouse, Tom Parker and Oliver Moore with Nick Ford as cox.

Germany’s world champion eight, crews from the USA and Holland as well as a Cambridge University eight, stroked by Kieran West, will form the opposition.

The Canal Cup is part of a wider festival weekend and over 150,000 people are set to line the banks to watch the action.
