Back in 2018 Worcester Dragons member Amanda Hughes became a GB Squad Silver Medal winner in the European Dragon Boat Championships.

Fellow club members followed and supported Amanda through her attempt to qualify for the GB squad and saw first hand the sacrifices she made over a long period to reach her goal. After being selected for the GB Squad back in April 2018, it was another 11 hard training sessions before finally flying out to Germany.

On Monday 20th August 2018 Amanda flew out with her GB team mates to Bradenburg in Germany (which is 40 minutes away from Berlin) before the 13th European Nation Championships competition took place from the 23rd to the 26th August 2018.

All of her hard work paid off as the squad earned Silver Medal in the 2000m Senior A Small Boat, The 500m Senior A Small Boat and The
200m Senior A Small Boat.

It was fantastic achievement for Amanda and our Club for her success in representing Great Britain and for coming back with three Silver Medals.
