Talk about having an instant yet lasting impact on a sport: rower and Olympic speaker Katherine ‘Kat’ Copeland MBE had only been in the senior Great Britain rowing team squad for two seasons when she won an Olympic gold medal in London 2012, the first Olympic gold that any British lightweight women’s squad had ever won. Having such a huge impact straightaway meant Copeland was immediately under the spotlight from the media, she coped with the pressure and has continued to perform exceptionally well since.
When she won the double scull at the Olympics with Sophie Hosking, it wasn’t just Kat’s face that lit up. Her achievement amazed, awed and inspired millions throughout the UK and beyond. She brings that level of inspiration and motivation to her talks when she relates her experiences to audiences. Katherine was awarded the MBE in 2013 for her services to rowing. Known to discuss topics such as peak performance, Copeland uses her experiences to inspire and motivate her audiences.
Definitely a talent to watch – she won her gold when she was just 22 this Olympic speaker is wise beyond her years and is delighted to share this wisdom with audiences at a wide range of private events or conferences.
Since her Olympic success, Kat Copeland went on to win a bronze medal at the 2014 European Championships in Belgrade and a bronze medal in 2017. She took home a gold medal in Poznan in 2015 after performing exceptionally well to win a well overdue European Championship gold. To add to her gold medal in 2015, Copeland also won a silver medal in the 2015 World Championships in France.
