DAVID Hislop from Castle Kennedy successfully retained his Mens 50+ Lightweight title at the Scottish Indoor Rowing Championships at the weekend.

The race distance was 1000metres. David led his race from start to finish and was a full 4 seconds clear from his nearest rival at the end. His time of 3:21.4s was slightly slower than his previous title wins but at the end of the day it was more than enough to win.

David has now won seven Scottish Indoor Rowing Championship title in a row and now has his eye on the British Championships at the end of March in Nottingham.
