Statement from Henley Royal Regatta

“As can sometimes happen in the sport of rowing, after finishing their respective races today it became apparent that two athletes on the water needed medical attention.  There was immediate and appropriate care on hand and both athletes are now stable and well,” said the Regatta’s Safety Officer. “There was rapid attendance when it was clear they were unwell, first from our waterborne safety team, who then immediately transferred them to the land-based medical team. They were treated and are recovering well.”
