Successful debut for Sasha representing GBR at JWOC 2014

Yes, this is a bit late after the event but we’d hoped that maybe ScotJOS had been secretly engaging in some media training and if we hung on we might have heard all about it from Sasha himself.
He’s obviously still recovering though judging by the lack of a willowy figure flitting round Scolty last night unfeasibly fast (although Joe Wright is fast filling that slot – watch out behind you Sasha!)

So the bare facts will have to do and they are rather impressive:
65th of 161 in the Sprint
45th of 163 in the Long*
17th of 60 in the Middle
16th 0f 54 in the Relay A team

*I think one of the Nopesport pundits was talking about Sasha when they said:”Just had a chance to catchup… some fantastic results today, serious strength in depth from the girls, bodes well for the two girls relay teams, and possibly the best ever GB performance from a first year 18?”

The BOF website echoes this sentiment too so it only remains for GRAMPs to add their congratulations. Make sure you shake his hand next time you see him at a Summer Series – it could be your claim to fame in a few years time!!

PS As if the above weren’t proof enough of his talent, according to the latest issue of CompassSport Sasha is now 7th overall and 1st Junior in the BOF Rankings (and beating Oleg!)
