One of the youngest athletes named in the rowing team, Lucy is a multiple junior and under 23 world medallist. Despite only debuting for the senior team in January 2021, she made her mark at the European Championships, winning a silver medal.

In Tokyo, she will sit in the stroke seat of the British women’s quad scull, hoping to lead her crew onto the podium.

Lucy who has been training full-time alongside her studies, comments:

To achieve Olympic selection is a moment I have dreamt of ever since I picked up an oar as a young girl.
