Arch earns World Championship Silver

06 October; Rod Warnecke


Alice Arch will return to Melbourne shortly with a shiny new keepsake – a silver medal from last month’s World Rowing Championships in Sarasota, Florida.

It’s been a breakthrough year for the Bachelor of Science (Honours) student as she’s forced her way into the Australian senior women’s Lightweight Quad Sculls’ crew. Having previously represented Australia at the World University Championships and at U23 level, Arch was invited to Rowing Australia’s National Training Centre in Penrith, NSW at the start of 2017 where she’s made the jump into senior ranks.

Arch and her Australians team-mates (Amy James, Georgia Miansarow and Georgia Nesbitt) entered the World Championships as one of the form crews, having won the gold medal in the previous World Cup #3 in a World Best Time. The race for the gold medal was a battle between Australia, Italy and China and it was the Italians that eventually held off a fast-finishing Australian crew to win the World title.

Alice Arch, in speaking to Rowing Australia post-race said: “I’m stoked. We are obviously disappointed that we didn’t get gold as that was our goal, but we’re really happy as a crew to have won silver today.”

While Arch hasn’t been able to train with her University team-mates so far this year, her World Championship success and experience will certainly be a valuable addition to the Melbourne women’s crew as they look to maintain their eight year unbeaten streak in the Australian Boat Race on the Yarra River later this month.
