Junior and U23 level international medallist and Yale University student, Oliver Wynne-Griffith first raced with the GB Rowing Team senior squad at the 2017 World Cup regatta in Lucerne.
Ollie Wynne-Griffith took up rowing whilst at Radley College in 2007; five years later he won a bronze medal at the World Rowing Junior Championships in the men’s eight. He was selected for the men’s eight that finished sixth at the World Rowing U23 Championships in 2014, and won an excellent silver medal in the men’s eights at the same event in 2016.
In his senior debut, Ollie finished tenth in the men’s four at the World Rowing Cup in Lucerne. He was selected as a spare for the World Rowing Championships in Sarasota-Bradenton, receiving the call to stroke the men’s four in their semi-final due after Will Satch was struck by illness. The crew held their nerve to finish second in the race and went on to win bronze in the final, with Satch back in the stroke seat.
Ollie has been part of the men’s eight for the 2018 and 2019 seasons, winning three World Cup silver medals, European silver, two World Championships bronze medals and World Cup gold.
Ollie is a keen debater and majored in political science at Yale University. His hobbies outside of rowing include socialising with friends, cooking and writing poetry.
