Intro

When Georgie was 15 she had a horse riding accident resulting in a serious head injury which put her in a coma for nine days and left her paralysed on her left side.

After a year of rehab, physiotherapy and a huge amount of determination, she returned to school and did well in her GCSEs, progressing through A levels and on to the University of Northampton where she took up rowing in her second year, having discovered a natural ability for the sport on the rowing machine. She joined Leeds Rowing Club because she wanted to keep fit and was later introduced to GB via the York Start programme.

Georgie became World Champion in 2023 in the Women’s quad – the first time GB has won gold in that boat class since 2010.
