What made you decide to go from rowing in school PE lessons, to joining a rowing club?

I started rowing because I wanted to try a new sport. I just find every part of rowing fun. But I especially like how you learn something new every time you go on the water.

Have you learned anything about yourself through taking part in sport?

Although I’d never expected this before, I think rowing has made me realise I’m a bit over-competitive! I’ve also learned about perseverance and patience in the short time I have been rowing.

How has rowing changed your future goals?

I hope to be part of a university rowing team and row nationally or even at an international level. If you’ve not started rowing yet, you really should!

You can learn to row, or join a boat club with LYR.
