USRowing U23 Selection Camp

Recent graduate Bryna Oleshansky ('14) joined the USRowing U23 Selection Camp in Berkeley, Calif., in early June, rooming with Michigan teammate and fellow All-American Jessica Eiffert. A returning senior for the Wolverines, Eiffert was selected for the women's pair and won the event at the U23 World Championship Trials on June 25 in West Windsor, N.J., with pair partner Aggie Nowinski (California). Eiffert will also race in the women's eight boat for USRowing at the U23 World Championships July 23-26 in Varese, Italy.

USRowing Senior National Team Selection Camp

Graduate student Amanda Elmore and Mueller are training with the U.S. Senior National Team in Princeton, N.J. A veteran of the USRowing U23 team, winning gold in the women's eight at 2012 and 2013 World Rowing U23 Championships, Elmore has her sights set on 2014 World Rowing Championships, to be held Aug. 24-31 in Amsterdam. A first team All-Big Ten selection and second team All-American in her lone season at Michigan, Elmore will continue training in Princeton until USRowing announces its World Championship roster in early August. Tomek has already qualified for the World Championships in the double sculls and is training in Oklahoma City.
