Intro

Emily first discovered rowing through the British Indoor Rowing Championships at the age of 12.

After winning a silver medal she decided to go to her local rowing club, Bewl Bridge Rowing Club, and almost immediately set her sights on competing at the Olympics one day.

Emily first represented GB at the U23 World Championships in 2013 whilst studying History of Art, winning bronze in the lightweight quadruple sculls. After completing a Masters in East Asian Art in 2015, Emily joined the senior GB Rowing Team full time. She made her Olympic debut at the delayed Tokyo 2020 Games in the lightweight women’s double sculls, setting a World Best Time in the heats but missing the podium in an agonising 0.01 second photo finish, the picture of which has been on her wall as a driving force ever since.

A three times World Champion and two times European Champion, Emily is hoping to compete at her second Olympic games in Paris this summer.

Once she’s done ‘playing around’ in boats, Emily will look to pursue a career in her other passion – Asian Art.
