Success for Two Wetherby alumni who competed at the Rio Olympics
Two Wetherby alumni competed at the Rio Olympics this summer. Constantine Louloudis was in the men’s coxless four. His crew won their heat, semi-final and then a gold medal in the final. This followed on from the bronze Constantine won in the men’s eight at the London Olympics. All the Wetherby boys were extremely proud of Constantine’s amazing achievement and are very much hoping that he will come and talk to them about his success in rowing and at the Rio Olympics. Constantine was awarded the MBE in the Queen's 2017 New Year Honours list for services to rowing.
Lawrence Clarke reached the semi-finals of the 110m hurdles after coming third in his first round heat. In the semi-final he came sixth which meant he just missed out on the finals by 0.05 secs. Lawrence had come fourth in the London Olympics.
