SLAF Rowing Team Emerge National Rowing Champions
The Air Force team emerged National Rowing Champions for the first time in the eight year history of Air Force Rowing by winning Two Gold medals, One Silver medal and Two Bronze medals in the Men’s Open Category at the 27th National Rowing Championships which was concluded on 17th September at the Bolgoda Lake Rowing Club. Thus, the SLAF team won the Gerry De Silva Trophy awarded to the Champion team of the Men’s Open category.

In addition to winning the Men’s Open Category the Air Force team were able to retain the Maj. General Percy Fernando Memorial Trophy awarded to the winners of the Men’s Over 19 age category by winning Two Gold medals, Two Silver medals and Two Bronze medals.

The victory for the Championship Trophy was not easily won. The Men’s Open Fours event was a Photo finish, and after the row down of 2000 meters the Air Force crew edged the S.Thomas’ Crew out by a mere half a second.

The Air Force team was coached by Mr.Rishane Fernando.

The final medals tally of the two categories read as follows.
