nxo chairman excels at British Indoor Rowing Champs

Philip Dyer, chairman of nxo and keep fit enthusiast, has finished in a fine fourth place recently at the British Indoor Rowing Championships.

The event held at the Olympic Velodrome in London in February of this year saw more than 1,500 competitors compete in a variety of age groups and classes from juniors to over 80s assisted rowers.

Philip's age group of between 55 and 59 saw a number of high class athletes pitted against one another in the 2km race with only one stroke separating Philip from third place.

With a highest finish in the competition in 2006 of 2nd place Philip said: "I am exceptionally pleased with the result and delighted with my performance. "The competition is fierce and the levels of fitness and technique second to none. It is vitally important to row your own race in these events and to pit myself against the best in the country is an honour. As they say there is always next year, with a lot of training in between!"
