Berkshire girl Gemma Hall has made a solid start to her senior international lightweight rowing career.

Gemma Hall has been involved in the sport since the age of 11, when she joined Henley Rowing Club.

In 2013, along with current senior GB lightweight Emily Craig, she won a fine bronze medal in the LW4x at the U23 championships in Linz. Selected in the same boat the following summer, Gemma finished a creditable 4th ; she and Start athlete Ellie Lewis raced in the LW2x at the FISU World University Rowing Championships later that season and won an impressive silver medal.

She stepped up in 2016 to race the LW1x in the World Rowing Championships in Rotterdam, finishing 12th.

Beyond the Boat

When her rowing career finishes, Gemma hopes to become a primary school teacher. Her ideal holiday destination is Costa Rica – she loves the people – and she would switch places with Serena Williams if she could take up another sport.

Peanut butter, a kindle and photos of friends and family would top Gemma’s list of things to take to a desert island, and her dream dinner party companions would be Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Beyonce.
