Rower - Women's Squad
Date of Birth: 3rd Aug 1989 (30 years old)
Club: Leander Club
Oxford Brookes graduate Katherine Douglas took up rowing in 2009 at university to keep fit.
She quickly showed herself to be a natural talent at the sport: in 2010 she won championship women’s fours at BUCS Regatta and elite fours at Henley Women’s Regatta. She also qualified for EUSA in Amsterdam where the crew won gold in the coxless fours.
Douglas’ first GB international outing was in 2011 when she raced in the women’s eights at the World Rowing U23 Championships in Amsterdam, finishing fifth.
She joined Leander Club in 2012 to train full-time, and the following year raced in a quad scull at the second World Cup event in Dorney, finishing fourth. In the same season she won the Remenham Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta, and was selected as women’s spare for the World Rowing Championships in Korea.
Douglas returned to the Senior squad in 2017 as part of the women’s eight, winning silver and bronze in the World Cup series and finishing fifth at the World Rowing Championships in Sarasota-Bradenton.
Douglas is Lottery funded through UK Sport.
