Intro

Talented sculler Harry Leask is aiming for a place in the GB team at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Leask¬†joined Leander Club in 2012 to train full time and has since represented Great Britain at World U23 level three times, placing fifth in the men’s eight in 2015 and fifth in the men’s quadruple sculls in Rotterdam in 2016 and fourth in the quad in Plovdiv in 2017.

In 2017 he made his senior debut at the first World Cup of the year in Belgrade, finishing fourth in the men’s quad.

He made his mark at the GB Rowing Team Senior & U23 Trials in April 2018, finishing second among a strong group of senior scullers. That performance saw Leask selected to row the single scull at the first two World Cup regattas of the year, finishing seventh in Linz.

At the Glasgow 2018 European Championships, Leask won a bronze medal alongside Jack Beaumont in the double scull, having replaced Angus Groom at late notice.

Harry’s domestic success includes wins at Henley Royal Regatta in the Prince of Wales and Queen Mother challenge cups.
