Intro

Olympic bronze medallist Tom George won silver at the 2023 European Rowing Championships in the men’s pair.

He learnt to row at Radley College and was first selected to represent Great Britain in 2012, when he won a bronze medal in the men’s eight (JM8+) at the World Rowing Junior Championships.

While studying at Princeton University, Tom went on to earn a spot on the U23 team from 2014-2016; his best result was an impressive silver medal in the men’s four (BM4-) at the 2016 World Rowing U23 Championships in Rotterdam.

In 2017, Tom made his senior debut, finishing fifth in the men’s pair (M2-) with Tom Jeffery at the World Rowing Championships in Sarasota-Bradenton.

He was then a member of the men’s eight for the 2018-2021 seasons, winning bronze medals at the Tokyo Olympic Games and 2018 and 2019 World Rowing Championships. He and his crew also took silver at the 2019 and gold at the 2021 European Rowing Championships.

After moving into the the pair (M2-) with Ollie Wynne-Griffith for the 2022 season, Tom has won gold at the World Cup I and III regattas, silver at the European Rowing Championships, and bronze at the World Championships.

Tom and Ollie continued their partnership in 2023, winning silver at the Europeans.
