SEATTLE--The September 2008 issue of Rowing News magazine features a recap of June's Henley Royal Regatta, and the cover photo is of the Husky-laden Canadian U-23 team, which won the Grand Final.
At the Henley, the Canadian crew matched up against USC's varsity eight boat, which consisted of six members of the Estonian national team. The Trojans led at both the Barrier and Fawley checkpoints, but the Canadians overtook USC and eventually won by two lengths.
The same Canadian U-23 crew competed in July at the U-23 World Championships in Brandenburg, Germany, taking silver behind the U.S. crew.
Gibson is currently competing under the Canadian flag at the Olympic Games in Beijing.
