After finishing fifth with Lucinda Gooderham in the women’s pair at the 2015 GB Rowing Team Senior and U23 Trials, Chin was given another chance to impress at the Essen Regatta in Germany. She took it with both hands as she and Karen Bennett won double gold in the women’s pair. The same partnership competed as a second GB pair at the World Cups in Varese and Lucerne, finishing tenth in both.

Chin and Bennett were then selected alongside Gooderham and Holly Norton for a women’s four at the World Rowing Championships in Aiguebelette, where they won an impressive silver medal.

Chin was a member of the women’s eight crew that won silver at the 2013 World Rowing U23 Championships in Linz, Austria. She also won the under-23 and open women’s categories at the inaugural British Rowing Sculling Festival in 2013.

She was selected for the senior GB Rowing Team for the first time in 2014 as part of the women’s eight that competed at the Windermere Cup in Seattle.

Chin also represented Britain at the 2014 World University Rowing Championships in Gravelines, France, teaming up with Bennett, Pippa Whittaker and Michelle Vezie to win women’s four gold with a dominant performance.
