Talented sculler Gavin Horsburgh capped his first senior international season in 2017 with a silver medal at the World Rowing Championships in Sarasota-Bradenton.
As a junior oarsman he won GB’s first ever World Championship gold medal in the men’s quad scull at the 2015 World Rowing Junior Championships in Rio de Janeiro. The following year he took home another impressive gold, racing in the men’s quad sculls at the World Rowing U23 Championships.
Horsburgh almost made it a historic treble of gold medals, narrowly missing out to France in the final of the lightweight men’s quad at the 2017 World Championships.
Earlier in the season he raced in the lightweight men’s double with Matthew Curtis at the World U23 Championships but the duo were struck down with illness and were unable to start their B final.
