World Class Start graduate Beth Bryan learned to row on the River Tees at Tees RC, before moving south to train full time with the GB Rowing Team.

Bryan first appeared on the international rowing circuit in 2011 when she raced at the Coupe de la Jeunesse in the junior women’s quadruple sculls. She went on to represent Great Britain at U23 level, winning silver and bronze medals in the women’s eight.

2017 was a breakthrough year for Bryan in the senior squad, winning World and European Championships gold in the quad alongside Holly Nixon, Mathilda Hodgkins-Byrne and Jess Leyden. The year started well, winning bronze in torrid conditions at the first World Cup in Belgrade, behind eventual World Championships gold and silver medallists Netherlands and Poland.

They convincingly beat the Poles to the bronze at the European Championships in Racice – a race won by the Netherlands – and repeated the position in Sarasota-Bradenton at the World Rowing Championships.

Beyond the Boat

Rowing is not the only watersport Bryan has an affinity for.  She swam at national level until the age of 15 and also loves scuba diving.  Later in life she would love to work in high performance swimming, and build on her current experience as a swimming coach.

The famous Teesside speciality, the chicken Parmo, is Beth’s favourite post-competition food. This delicacy consists of breaded chicken baked in béchamel and served with chips and garlic sauce. She would invite her younger sister, Peter Kay and Sonny Bill Williams to her ideal dinner party, and would love to swap places with Usain Bolt for a day.
