Biography

Alastair Heathcote was selected in the men's eight for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and won a silver medal, finishing in front of the Americans and behind the Canadians. Heathcote started rowing at the age of 15 at Eton College however; he decided not to pursue the sport beyond high school. Instead, he decided on a different path, and moved to New Zealand to work on a farm sheering sheep. After a year abroad Heathcote moved back to Great Britain where he went to study at Newcastle University. To offset his studies, he began rowing for fun. What was supposed to be recreational activity rekindled his passion, and Heathcoat began working towards his Master’s degree at Oxford Brooke University so that he could row on the team there.
