“I arrived at Brookes with little rowing experience, stretching no more than a couple of junior sculling events and indoor rowing. My move to Brookes was a big step up; the training is tough but rewarding; with everyone given an equal chance to prove themselves.
Within my first two years, I have represented the University internationally at Duisburg Regatta, won a BUCS gold medal, and beat both Oxford and Cambridge in fixtures for the first time ever.
The Brookes programme, coaching staff and squad mentality have not only improved my physiology, but built my confidence and resilience. It’s an exciting time for the squad, we’re developing faster than ever and I feel extremely proud to wear a Brookes Lycra.”
