#DiscoverYour Gold

UK Sport, funded by The National Lottery (TNLUK), has launched the biggest multi-sport talent identification campaign in British history.


Over 20 sports are involved in #DiscoverYour Gold, a partnership between UK Sport, the English Institute of Sport (EIS), and a range of National Governing Bodies, targeting 15-24 year old males and females to be fast-tracked into the exciting world of high performance sport.

Rowing is proud to be part of two strands, #DiscoverYour Giant and #DiscoverYour ParaPotential. The #DiscoverYour Giant campaign is targeted at people taller than 5’10” as outlined below:

>5’10” (177.8cm)>6’2″ (187.96cm)
>5’10” (177.8cm)
>6’2″ (187.96cm)

Time to #DiscoverYour Gold?

Once identified, athletes will be managed by British Rowing within our talent identification programmes Start and Para-Rowing programme. After the #DiscoverYour Gold ends, then our talent identification will also restart.
