Rower - Women's Squad
Date of Birth: 10th Jun 1993 (26 years old)
A World U23 medallist and A-finalist at the 2017 and 2018 World Rowing Championships, Melissa Wilson hopes to make a mark on the senior international stage during the Tokyo Olympiad.
As stroke of the victorious Cambridge blue boat for the 2017 Women’s Boat Race, Wilson has demonstrated impressive talent during her short time in rowing. She took up the sport at university and has since won silver and bronze medals at the 2014 and 2015 World Rowing U23 Championships, and finished seventh in the single sculls at the FISU World University Rowing Championships in 2016.
She made her senior debut in 2017 at the World Cup in Lucerne, racing to sixth in the women’s four. She then went on to race with Cambridge teammate Holly Hill in the women’s pair at the World Rowing Championships in Sarasota-Bradenton, finishing fourth. Last summer she came fifth in the women’s quad at the World Rowing Championships in Plovdiv.
