Thirty Oxfordshire rowers have been named in the Great Britain team for the World Championships in Chungju, Korea later this month.

The eight-day regatta takes place from August 25 to September 1.

Oxford’s Andy Triggs Hodge, Oxford Blue Pete Reed and Henley’s Alex Gregory, gold medallists in the men’s four at the London Olympics are all named in the men’s eight.

Henley’s Will Satch also features, along with Leander Club members Tom Ransley, Dan Ritchie and Phelan Hill (cox) also feature.

The crew won gold at their home World Cup regatta in Eton Dorney before finishing outside the medals in Lucerne last month, where they had to settle for fourth position.

Former Oxford Brookes duo Richard and Peter Chambers get the nod in the lightweight double sculls.

Two more Brookes men – Matthew Tarrant and Scott Durant – are in the four, with Leander’s Alan Sinclair.

Frances Houghton, from Wheatley, is paired up once again with Vicky Meyer-Laker in the women’s double scull after winning medals in two of the 2013 world cups.

GB will field the same women’s eight that came fourth in a record-breaking final in Lucerne.

Oxford duo Katie Greves and Olivia Carnegie-Brown feature, alongside fellow county colleagues Louisa Reeve and cox Zoe de Toledo.

Kathryn Twyman, from Oxford and a member at Wallingford, is in the lightweight double scull.
