NATIONAL TITLES CANBERRA 2019
The Gold Coast Dragons were again making their mark at National Titles 2019, defending their Gold Sen B 500 m mixed 10s win at Kawana in 2018 as well as other fantastic results:
- Gold Sen B 500 mixed 10s
- Gold Sen B 200 mixed 10s
- Bronze Sen B 2 k mixed 10s
- Silver Sen B 500 m open 10s
- Gold Sen B 200 m open 10s
- Silver Sen B 2 k open 10s
These results ensure our qualification in the World Club Crew Championships in France 2020.
Canberra really put on a show with great weather and venue with the Governor Generals house taking pride of place overseeing the racing on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin.
A very hotly contested Sen B 200 mixed 10s race saw a truly too close for comfort finish and dead heat with rivals Currumbin.
After months of intensive training it was fantastic to wrap up the season culminating in such great results. Congratulations and thanks to all who contributed to a wonderful season.
NATIONAL TITLES KAWANA 2018
The Gold Coast Dragons entered the 2018 National Championships without any expectation of winning medals, let alone coming home with five. Medals were won in five categories:
- Bronze Prems 200 m mixed 10s
- Gold Sen B 500 m mixed 10s
- Silver Sen B 200 m mixed 10s
- Silver Sen B 200 m open 10s
- Gold Sen B 1k open 10s.
The Bronze medal winning performance was truly nail biting, 3rd place being achieved in .04 of a second behind 1st place and .02 of a second behind the second place getters.
This really set the scene for the rest of the titles, with medals being won on each subsequent day.
A great achievement for such newly formed teams who had only worked together for less than a season to bring home such a fantastic result.
We'll be back in 2019 with our sights set squarely on France for the World Club Crew Championships in 2020.
