The Waikato Independent:
Half a second.
Half a second was all that stood between Jordan Stanley and winning the Maadi Cup in 2009.
Eight years on he is determined to give back to the school which provided him so many fond memories, and to try again at a piece of Maadi Cup glory.
The difference this time is Stanley is the coach.
A former Westlake student, Stanley has coached the senior Westlake Maadi squad for the past two years alongside his father Mike.
Jordan Stanley is trying again for Maadi glory, this time as a coach.
“Being a part of and helping to further that legacy is very special for me,” said Stanley.
“I have the privilege of coaching with my dad, a Westlake rowing legend. I couldn’t ask for better professional development than the skills he teaches me on a daily basis.”
