Selkirkshire student Maddie Arlett has rowed her way to a British Championship title having only taken up the sport two years ago.

Arlett, from Ettrickbridge, is in her third year at Edinburgh University studying sports science and, since joining the uni boat club, has rowed in coxed fours and eights and represented Scotland at the Home Internationals in Ireland last July.

Three months ago she changed to sculling (two oars) and along with Robyn Hart-Wicks (Kirriemuir) became British Champions in the Women’s Under 23 Lightweight Pairs Sculls in Nottingham last weekend.
