George has been selected to compete in the men's four at the 2014 World Rowing Championships in Amsterdam.  Together with Andrew Triggs Hodge, Moe Sbihi and Alex Gregory, George heads to Amsterdam unbeaten in this event following their coming together in the 'new look' men's four at the start of the 2014 racing season.  The crew have won gold at the 2014 European Championships in Belgrade, the Rowing World Cup in Aiguebelette and most recently at the Rowing World Cup in Lucerne.  At the 2014 GB Rowing Team Senior & U23 Trials George came 2nd in the men's pair event with Andrew Triggs Hodge.

George raced in the men's eight at the third World Cup of the 2013 season in Lucerne which finished 4th.  At the 2013 World Rowing Championships in Chungju, George won an historic gold medal in the men's eight.

At the 2012 GB Rowing Team Senior Trials, held at Eton/Dorney, George and Constantine Louloudis came third in the men's pair.  During the 2012 World Cup series, George raced in the newly formed men's pair with Will Satch. The duo won a silver medal in Belgrade and finished 5th in Lucerne.  At the 2012 Olympic Games in London, George and Will Satch won an outstanding bronze medal, finishing over 4 seconds ahead of Italy, in the men’s pair.

At the 2011 GB Rowing Team Senior Trials, held at Eton/Dorney, George was placed 4th in the men's pair with Constantine Louloudis.  Also with Constantine Louloudis, at the 2011 Lucerne World Cup, George narrowly missed out on a place in the A final of men's pairs, and then won the B final ahead of Germany to achieve a world ranking of 7th.

George raced in the men's four at the 2010 World Rowing U23 Championships in Brest, Belarus where he won a silver medal.  He then moved to the men's eight for the FISU World University Championships in Hungary, this time winning gold in a boat that took the lead from the start and continued to extend that lead, finishing a length ahead of Estonia, with Ireland in third place.

He represented GB at the Youth Olympic Festival in Sydney in January 2009, winning gold in the pair, four and eight, and was then selected to race in the coxed four at the World U23 Championships in Racice, finishing 9th.
