Rowing is one of Scotland’s leading Olympic sports having delivered 18 Team GB vests since London 2012 and produced 9 Olympic medallists during this period. Tokyo 2020 saw a record number of Scottish rowers represent Great Britain with Harry Leask and Angus Groom winning a memorable silver medal in the men’s quad, the first ever British medal in this Olympic boat class.  

Scotland has a thriving and successful performance pathway which has supported the development and progression of rowing talent at all levels up to and including our Olympic teams.  The Tokyo cycle has seen home grown athletes winning multiple medals for the GB Rowing Team on the world stage at junior, under 23 and senior level.  By raising the bar at all levels, we have also seen best-ever performances by the Scotland Rowing Team at the Home International Regatta and the Commonwealth Rowing Championships. 

The pages in this section provide information about the performance pathway in Scotland and the support that is available from Scottish Rowing to help rowers aspiring for Scotland and Great Britain representation.
