Commitment: Former Matamata College boys James Ingham and Sam Rush were rescued from Lake Taupo after their boat capsized a few weeks ago, but it didn’t take long for them to bounce back.
They continued their rigorous rowing training the following day. It didn’t stop them delivering their best results ever at the Cambridge Town Cup regatta recently.
James and Sam now have their sights set on gold medals at the AON Maadi cup at Lake Ruataniwha in March.
The inseparable pair are senior rowers for St Paul’s Collegiate School in Hamilton.
