{gallery}Latest_News/Nationals_2012:::1{/gallery}At the 2012 Australian Rowing Championships, the Adelaide University Boat Club had a large presence, with entries in 28 events, taking three GOLD, four SILVER and three BRONZE medals.
Their were many excellent races by SA athletes, in particular the mens open single, pair and four.

The quality of the single field was highlighted by those edged into the B final, including Nick Hudson. AUBC's Chris Morgan continued to show why he is one of the best scullers in the country, winning the start & leading early. He had Merc's David Crawshay by 3 seconds at the 500m mark, but the Victorian doggedly wore this down to 2seconds at the 1000m, 1second gap at the 1500m, then went for home very early to win by 1second.
