Emily Cameron will race for a gold medal today at the world rowing championships in Amsterdam.
The 31-year-old Wilmot Valley native is a member of the Canadian women’s quadruple sculls team that finished third in Thursday’s semifinal. The top three boats advanced to the final.
“We had really good rhythm from beginning to end,” said Cameron in a Rowing Canada media release. “It felt really relaxed.”
Cameron and teammates Kate Goodfellow, Carling Zeeman and Antje von Seydlitz-Kurzback “raced a strong and composed semifinal, finishing third.”
The final will be raced this afternoon.
The four women are going into the final with a goal of bettering last year’s silver-medal performance. They won the silver medal in the A final of the World Rowing Cup 3 event in July.
Cameron trains full time with the Canadian national team.
