Rower Sadly Dies After Collapsing After Henley Head Race

At the Henley Four and Eights Head rowing event on Saturday morning, Upper Thames rower, Tim Senior who was rowing in an eight crew collapsed afterwards and sadly died in the ambulance en route to the Royal Berks Hospital.

Chair of Upper Thames Rowing Club Justin Sutherland said, “Thanks are due to his crewmates who did everything they could have done, and to those who went with him to hospital. Tim had just turned 51 and was on everyone’s speed dial when recruiting for crews lacking youth, strength and fitness.  Losing a friend in this way is so far off the scale of normality it is impossible to know what to say or think today, other than our thoughts are with Tim’s family and friends at this tragic time, he was a smashing guy and his loss is being keenly felt by many.”
