Rio 2016 Olympiad: 2013 – 2016

Rosamund was selected in the women’s quadruple scull at the start of the 2016 season along with Jess Leyden, Holly Nixon and Tina Stiller. They finished fourth at the World Cup in Varese and fifth at the European Championships in Brandenburg before heading to the Final Olympic Qualification Regatta in Lucerne. The top two went to Rio but, despite a valiant effort, the GB crew had to settle for fourth overall.

Rosamund has raced in the women’s eight throughout 2015 and helped qualify the boat for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games with a fourth-placed finish at the World Championships in Aiguebelette.

The season started with fifth place at the European Championships in Poznan, with the GB crew looking well on course for a medal until an unfortunate boat-stopping crab in the closing stages.

They hit back with impressive bronze medals at the Varese and Lucerne World Cups, twice going under six minutes at the first of those, before finishing less than a second shy of the podium in Aiguebelette.

Rosamund had started the Olympiad in the women’s quadruple scull, finishing fifth at the Eton Dorney World Cup and tenth in Lucerne before placing ninth at the 2013 World Championships in Chungju.

She moved to the eight for the 2014 season and won silver at the European Championships in Belgrade. She added bronze medals at the World Cups in Aiguebelette and Lucerne before finishing sixth at the World Championships in Amsterdam.

London 2012 Olympiad: 2009 – 2012

Rosamund raced throughout 2009 in the senior women’s quad and won a silver medal at the World Cup in Munich before placing fifth in both Lucerne and at the World Championships in Poznan. She also rowed alongside Anna Watkins in the double in Lucerne, replacing the ill Annabel Vernon, and finished seventh.

Rosamund was selected as a spare for the 2010 World Championships, having finished 11th in the women’s single scull at the World U23 Championships in Brest. She then raced with the women’s eight at the 2011 European Championships in Plovdiv, finishing fourth.
