VICTORIA, British Columbia - George Washington men's rowing alumnus Trofym Anderson, who recently graduated after one of the most successful seasons in program history, will continue his rowing career on the national stage as a member Canada's Under-23 National Team this summer.
Anderson was named to the Men's Coxed Four boat and will compete at the Under-23 World Championship July 23-27 in Varese, Italy.
The Welland, Ontario, native has participated in Canada's national team development system for the past several years and earned his seat through a three-week selection process at Canada's national training facility in Victoria, British Columbia.
Last summer, Anderson competed for Canada's U-23 team at the World Rowing Championships in Linz, Austria, with his boat finishing in fifth place out of six crews in the Men's Coxed Four A Final.
Rowing Canada Avrion cites the Under-23 National Team as its most important development component leading to Canada's Senior National Team.
GW's men's rowing team has a decorated history of oarsman logging international experience. In addition to Anderson, rising junior Jordan Tewksbury-Volpe is currently attempting to make the United States Under-23 National Team.
Recent graduate James Stafford rowed for the United States at the 2010 CanAmMex Regatta, while alumni Brian Winke '93, Jonathan D'Alba '07 and David Morgenstern '11 have all logged international time as members of various United States teams.
The most notable GW alumnus to row in international competition is GW Athletic Hall of Famer Aquil Abdullah '95, who became the first African American to row as a member of the United States Olympic Team at the Athens Games in 2004.
