On 4th September, DPAG DPhil student Brianna Stubbs secures a Silver medal in the 2015 World Rowing Women's Lightweight Quadruple Sculls Championships at Lake Aiguebelette, France.

Brianna Stubbs, Ruth Walczak, Emily Craig and Ellie Piggott were amongst the fastest qualifiers for today’s final having won their heat in commanding style.

“I think it was really good that we didn’t panic”, said Stubbs. “There was a real sense of shared commitment and I knew that we were going as fast as we could at that point. The quality of this event has moved on. There are more crews and more tight racing”.
