Adam Neill is part of a large cohort of Leander Club rowers joining the GB Rowing Team senior squad this year. Following several years out with a back injury, Adam returned strongly in 2016, winning the Ladies Plate at the Henley Royal Regatta and taking the openweight men’s title at the British Rowing Indoor Championships.

He made his Great Britain debut in 2008, winning silver in the men’s single at the Coupe de la Jeunesse. The same year he took the Fawley Cup title at Henley.

Beyond the Boat

After training has finished for the day Adam likes to watch Gossip Girl and play Risk. His go-to post competition food is steak and chips, and he is a big fan of country music, both for training and relaxing.

Chris Hadfield, Richie McCaw and Usain Bolt would be on the guest list at Adam’s dream dinner party. He loves holidaying in the Alps at any time of year, and is well suited to active mountain life.

In another life Adam would love to have been a Formula One driver: ‘not that it was ever a possibility at 6ft 8′ tall’.
