Langley rower and teammate pull together to win Pan Am bronze

Kristin Bauder from Langley along with Rosie DeBoef won a medal in Ontario waters.

Langley athlete Kristin Bauder made up one-half of Canada’s bronze medal winning rowing duo at the Pan American Games in Toronto.

Bauder, who turns 26 on Aug. 10, teamed with Rosie DeBoef to capture bronze in the women’s pair in the Pan Am rowing competition in St. Catharines, Ontario.

An R.E. Mountain grad, Bauder is a late bloomer, having started rowing in university.

Bauder started rowing through both the Talent Identification program with Rowing Canada and Simon Fraser Rowing Club at Burnaby Lake in the summer of 2011.

“I used to be a flatwater kayaker and was taking a bit of a break to finish university and had the intentions of returning to kayaking, however, I quickly found rowing and things took off from there,” Bauder said.

She competed in coxless pairs and coxless four at 2014 world rowing championships, as well as the 2014 world rowing cup.
