It is said an “overnight” success takes 8 years but sometimes you can see the rowing stars of the future coming over the hill very fast indeed.

Young Veronica Wall – photographed below with a gold medal in the Under 16 single sculls at the New Zealand Secondary Schools Championships (known as the Aon Maadi Cup) last weekend flanked by proud Mum, Charlotte Cox two to her right, is making more than waves down under.

Veronica not only won the Under 18 single sculls, she also won U16 and U17.  Well, that is a hell of a haul for a young athlete.

Look at her School, Ashburton College’s results from the regatta, and you can see that she also was in an U18 quad which won (one of the other girls was U15).

Any rowing statisticians care to find similar results from their local schools regattas to see if such a feat has been done before?
