CHUNGJU, South Korea — Summerside’s Emily Cameron and her Canadian teammates won silver in the women’s quadruple sculls Saturday at the world rowing championships.
Cameron, Antje Seydlitz-Kurzbach of Smithers, B.C., Carling Zeeman of Cambridge, Ont., and Kate Goodfellow of Perth, Ont., finished second in six minutes 45.02 seconds. Germany won gold in 6:41.86.
“We stuck to our race plan,” said Goodfellow. “We knew we had contact with Germany early on, but in the end they were just too quick.”
Poland took the bronze in 6:46.27.
“Winning our heat and going straight through to the final, we realized (we) had a really good shot at a medal,” said Cameron. “We had five days off to train and practise, and we just stayed focused and we knew that when push came to shove we could have been first or second.”
