Newcastle University graduate Tim Clarke was selected to represent Great Britain in the men’s eight for the opening World Cup of the 2017 season, winning his first senior silver.
Tim Clarke took up rowing in 2007 at Abingdon School, and continued training with the High Performance Programme at Newcastle University before joining Leander Club in Henley-on-Thames.
His international debut came in 2012 when he won silver in the men’s eight at the FISU World University Rowing Championships. He went on to place fifth in the under-23 men’s eight in 2013, and won gold in the FISU men’s eight in 2014 and 2016.
After joining the GB Rowing Team senior squad at the start of 2017, Clarke was selected in the men’s eight for the first World Cup in Belgrade, winning silver behind the Netherlands. At World Cup III in Lucerne, Clarke teamed up with fellow Newcastle University graduate Tom Ford in the men’s pair, finishing second, and added a cox in the form of Harry Brightmore for the World Rowing Championships in Florida, where they finished just outside the medals in fourth.

Clarke is currently studying for an IOC diploma in sports nutrition, and hopes to pursue a career as a performance nutritionist once he finishes rowing.
Sir Edmund Hillary, Steven Gerrard and Billy Connolly are his dream dinner party guests, and bad driving is his pet hate.
He won the Schools’ Head of the River as a J15 cox.
