Richmond pick's up three more gold medals in Sydney

Richmond Rowing Club has picked up another three gold medals on the second and final day of the 2011 Edward Trickett regatta in Sydney this weekend.
The first gold came in the Women’s C Grade Four stroked by Zara Love who easily won their final by six seconds with Sydney University second.
The Richmond men’s C double scull of Sam Morrison and Nick Schouten were the next crew to claim gold for Richmond, winning a very tight race by just under a second to Griffith University in tough head wind conditions.
The Richmond female C eight stroked by Zara Love won a two crew race against Liechhardt completing the eights double having won the D eight on the first day of the regatta.
Women’s coach Derek Begg is said to be very pleased with the performance of the Richmond girls as they have won four gold medals and a number of minor medals which proved significant in placing Richmond fourth overall in the club championship points table for this years regatta.
The results over the weekend were a significant improvement on last years results where Richmond only won the one gold medal over the two day regatta. Club treasurer and long time member Troy Durham said that the club had performed extremely well winning five gold medals over the weekend and the three gold on the second day when the conditions started to deteriorate towards the end of the day was a great effort by the club.
