Tokyo Olympian Imogen is reigning European champion in the lightweight double sculls.
Having learned to row at Trinity College, Cambridge, in 2014, she had a meteoric rise to the top, getting her first taste of international success in the Cambridge University Women’s BC eight that took gold at the 2015 European Universities Rowing Championships.
In 2016, Imogen rowed in the CUWBC lightweight eight and reserve boat before moving up to the Blue Boat for both the 2017 and 2018 Women’s Boat Races, won by Cambridge. In 2017 she also competed in the lightweight women’s quad at the World Rowing U23 Championships in Plovdiv, finishing fifth.
Later in 2018, alongside training to be a doctor, she was selected to row the lightweight single scull at the first World Cup of the year in Belgrade, finishing an impressive fourth place. She went on to row in the same boat class at the World Rowing U23 Championships in Poznan, taking a dominant gold by nearly two lengths.
Moving into the lightweight double sculls, she partnered Ellie Piggott at the 2019 European Championships, finishing eighth before claiming World Championships bronze with Emily Craig.
Imogen and Emily have continued to scull together since then, taking silver at the European Championships in 2021 before finishing fourth, just 0.01 seconds off third place, at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
They dominated their final at the European Rowing Championships in 2022 to win the gold medal by clear water.
