University of Edinburgh student and lightweight sculler Maddie Arlett made her debut with the GB Rowing Team senior squad at the 2017 World Cup regatta in Belgrade.
She won bronze alongside Emily Craig in Belgrade before returning to the squad in the lightweight quad for the third World Cup, winning silver alongside Ellie Piggott, Gemma Hall and Robyn Hart-Winks. The quartet also featured at the World Championships in Sarasota-Bradenton, finishing fifth.
In 2019 she won bronze in the lightweight single scull at the World Rowing Championships in Linz, Austria.
Arlett was selected for the U23 lightweight women’s quadruple scull in 2015 and 2016, and produced solid performances to finish fourth and sixth respectively.
On the domestic stage Maddie held the British Championships U23 lightweight double scull title for three consecutive years.
In her spare time Maddie enjoys cycling, martial arts and MMA. She describes herself as an ‘instant coffee connoisseur’, a tattoo fan and enjoys looking after her indoor plants – she currently has a snake plant and a cheese plant.
With Rio firmly on the horizon for the core group of Olympic squad rowers, the next wave will be looking to impress at the third GB Rowing Team assessment of the season.
