SLAF Champs at 2nd Indoor Rowing Championship 2011
The Sri Lanka Air Force Rowing team participating at the ‘2nd Indoor Rowing Championships – 2011’ organized by the General Sir John Kotelawala Defence university  in collaboration with the Bolgoda Lake Rowing Club emerged Champions in the ‘Men’s Elite’ category, ‘Men’s 25 – 31 years category’ and the ‘Endurance Challenge’. With this victory the Air Force Oarsmen were able to retain the ‘Vice Chancellors Challenge Trophy’ awarded to the winners of the Men’s Elite category, whilst winning the Wg Cmdr Thilina Kaluarachchi Memorial Trophy and the Bolgoda Endurance Challenge trophy in the other two events.

The Air Force Oarsmen on their way to winning these trophies beat all the previous year’s timings in the Men’s Elite category setting new standards for Indoor Rowing in Sri Lanka. Another unique feature for the Air Force Rowing team this year was the participation of a female team for the first time in the history of Air Force Rowing. The girls were able to clinch a ‘Bronze’ medal in the 21 – 25 Age category team event.

The two days event which was conducted at the General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University was keenly contested by the Officer Cadets of both the KDU and the SLAF and over ten other schools and rowing clubs. The competition concluded with a colourful awards ceremony at the auditorium with the participation of the SLAF Dancing troupe, the Officer Cadets Dancing troupe and a magnificent dance by the dance troupe of the ‘Differently Able’ soldiers of the Sri Lanka Army.

The results of the Air Force team are as follows.
