Colne rower Gregg Stevenson wins World Championship gold medal on his birthday in Belgrade
Colne rower Gregg Stevenson hailed World Championship gold medal success as the perfect birthday present after starting Great Britain’s gold rush in Belgrade. Gregg from Colne, who turned 39 on the 9th of September, teamed up with Lauren Rowles to earn victory in a thrilling PR2 mixed double sculls final which saw the British pair put under serious pressure by China’s Liu Shuang and Jiang Jijian.
