Emily Ford broke into the GB Rowing Team senior squad in 2018, having competed at Junior and U23 level.

Ford, sister of fellow GB squad member Tom, won successive medals at the World U23 Championships in 2015 and 2016 – a bronze in the four in the former and a silver in the eight at the latter.

In 2018, Ford rowed in a pair with fellow Leander rower Emily Ashford at the first World Cup in Belgrade, finishing sixth. She moved to the women’s eight for the second World Cup in Linz where the crew finished fourth and was named as a spare for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships and the World Championships. She also won the Town Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta in a GB Rowing Team composite crew.

She has been part of the women’s four for the 2019 season, finishing 6th at the European Championships and at World Cup II in Poznan and 7th at World Rowing Cup III in Rotterdam.
