WINDSOR-based Ollie Cook will join forces again with Matt Rossiter, Rory Gibbs from Marlow and Sholto Carnegie in the men's four as part of a strong Great Britain Rowing Team for Wold Cup II in Poznan, Poland (June 21-23).

The quartet were crowned European champions earlier this month - a first European gold medal for GB since 2017.

Carnegie said: "We're feeling really positive about the boat. It's still a new crew which is really exciting because it means whenever we go out rowing there's more to improve on and more speed to find.

"We're keeping it fun the whole time and looking forward to racing more.

The men's quad of Jack Beaumont and Pete Lambert, both from Maidenhead, plus Jonny Walton and Angus Groom is unchanged after winning bronze at the European Championships earlier this month.

The GB Para-rowing squad is also competing at World Cup II after scooping six medals in their season opener at the Gavirate International Regatta in May.

The silver medal-winning women's eight, which includes Sunningdale-based Hattie Taylor, has one chance with alternate cox Morgan Bayham-Williams replacing Matilda Horn.

Looking ahead to Poznan this weekend, British Rowing Director of Performance, Brendan Purcell said: "We had some fantastic performances at the European Championships in Lucerne and it's great to have more of the team racing at World Cup II.

"Our priority this year remains qualifying as many boats as possible for the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, so this World Cup is another opportunity for us to assess where we're at and test ourselves against the rest of the world."

World Cup II will be broadcast on BBC online and on the red button this Sunday from 10-1.50pm.
