Curranz-powered rower makes spectacular return to international stage for Great Britain 

Francesca Rawlins (November Customer of the Month), posted a stunning performance for Great Britain in the Rowing World Cup in Belgrade.

The Londoner recorded a brilliant success in the hugely competitive lightweight women's double skulls C Final in Belgrade. 

Described as an 'amazing win' by British Rowing in a hotly-contested division, this result meant a lot to Fran, a former double gold Commonwealth medallist who has been on the sidelines since 2015. 

She says: "This season has been a whirlwind for me: I've managed to PB on my 2km, 5km and half-
hour tests, have posted PBs on the water in my single and the double, and been invited to train full time with the GB squad, all while working full time. 

"This year with all its events and outcomes has been such a wonderfully unexpected turn for me and I was incredibly excited to finally race with GBR on my back. Now the real fun begins and I'm looking forward to seeing the full racing season through until the World Championships in September. 

"Thank you for the support that you and Curranz have given me in achieving so many things this season.'
