Biography

Andrew Triggs Hodge is among the most senior members of the GB Rowing squad, having won men’s four gold at Beijing 2008, alongside Pete Reed, Tom James and Steve Williams.

Triggs Hodge, a former Oxford Blue who won a memorable Boat Race in 2005, made his Olympic debut in Athens as part of the men’s eight and has won six world medals, including two golds.

He was awarded an MBE in the 2009 New Year Honours List and he counts five-time Olympic champion rower Sir Steve Redgrave as his sporting hero.

After the Beijing Olympics, Triggs Hodge and Reed moved to the pair and won three consecutive world silver medals behind New Zealanders Hamish Bond and Eric Murray before returning to the four ahead of London 2012.

His motto for training is: ‘Excellence is a lifestyle. There is always someone else training harder, so train more!’

At the 2012 Olympics in London, Hodge won gold in the men's four with partners Alex Gregory, Pete Reed and Tom James.
