Helen Glover MBE

First British woman to win an Olympic rowing gold

Helen Glover MBE

British rowing champion and Olympian Helen Glover was the first British woman to win an Olympic Champion title in the sport. Getting her gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics, this Olympic speaker is renowned for crossing the line well ahead of the pack.

As an Olympic speaker, Helen Glover can draw upon the countless times she has achieved first place in some of the world’s most challenging rowing competitions. In 2009, she won the Bernard Churcher Trophy at the Henley Women’s Regatta in the senior single scull. Two years later, in the coxless pair, Helen won the World Rowing Cup in Munich, the World Rowing Cup in Lucerne and the World Rowing Championships at Lake Bled, Slovenia.

In 2012, Helen took the rowing world by storm, winning the World Rowing Cups in Belgrade, Lucerne and Munich as well as the coxless pair gold at the London Olympic Games.

Building on this success, in 2013 the Olympic speaker won the coxless pair World Rowing Cups in Australia, London and Switzerland, as well as the Princess Grace Challenge Cup at the Henley Royal Regatta (in the quadruple scull) and the World Rowing Championships in South Korea, once more as part of a coxless pair. The next couple of years saw Helen repeating her success over and over, winning no fewer than eight competitions in 2014 and seven in 2015.
