Australian Olympic Rowing Team For Stockholm

 

Next July at Stockholm all the world’s best amateur rowers will meet in competition, and for the first time in history of amateur rowing Australia is to be represented. For some considerable time past there has been keen excitement among the supporters and enthusiasts of the various States as to who would be chosen to represent Australia. The task for the selectors was not an easy one, as they recognised the fact that champions had to be sent whose ability and performances justified their selection. In view of the generous and sportsman like action of the Victorian Association in deciding to help financially after the New South Wales association decided to send a crew, the selectors had added two Victoria’s best oarsmen, and at Monday nights association meeting announced the men chosen the go to England and Stockholm.The Team is as follows:-

 

AMESS, S (Balmain)

BARKER, E H (Sydney)

DOYLE, A B (University)
