Olympian, Tom Ransley MBE, joins Row Britannia
Tom completed his collection of international titles at Rio 2016 when he added Olympic gold to his two world championships and one European crown.
Tom was educated at the King's School, Canterbury, University of York and University of Cambridge. He is a former Cambridge Blue and World University Games medallist.
He has just completed his ninth season with the senior GB men’s squad.
Most of that time has been spent in the men’s eight, the boat in which he won Olympic gold in Rio and bronze at London 2012.
In 2015 he was part of the crew that became European Champions in the men's coulees four.
Tom started the 2017 season in the men’s eight – the only returning member of the victorious Rio 2016 crew. At the first World Cup in Belgrade, they missed out on gold by less than a second – an impressive performance for such a new crew. He missed the second and third World Cups following an appendectomy, but returned to finish seventh at the World Rowing Championships in Sarasota-Bradenton.
We are delighted that Tom has joined Row Britannia and will be visiting the University of Cambridge on Monday 20th January 2020 or before the 13th March 2020 (Sport Relief).
