PARALYMPIC rowing hero Naomi Riches has been included in the GB Rowing Team for the World Championships later this month.

The 30-year-old from Marlow is in the Legs-Trunks-Arms Coxed Four squad at the eight day regatta, which takes place in Chungju, South Korea, from August 25.

Riches, who won gold at last year's Paralympics in the mixed coxed four, is joined in the squad by Aylesbury's Pamela Relph, James Fox and Oliver Hester.

The crew, which won World Cup gold at Eton Dorney in June, will be coxed by Oliver James.

Riches and the rest of the team will be leaving for Korea next week.
