On the Thames, in London, Harry Kelley regains his world sculling championship

Harry Kelley, from London, had lost his sculling world championship to Robert Chambers of Newcastle-on-Tyne in 1859.  After a gap of six years, Kelley challenged Chambers for the championship in a race on the Thames and won back his title and the equivalent of $4,500.  Kelley later defended his world title against an American challenger, again in London, and then retired.  (By John Osborne)
