Biography

At the 2012 GB Rowing Team Senior Trials held on 10/11 March at Eton/Dorney, Olivia raced in the women's pair with crewmate Emily Taylor, finishing 3rd.

At the 2010 World Rowing Championships on New Zealand's Lake Karapiro, Olivia and her crewmates in the women's eight - Jo Cook, Louisa Reeve, Jessica Eddie, Victoria Thornley, Natasha Page, Lindsey Maguire, Alison Knowles and cox Caroline O'Connor - finished 4th.

For the first of the 2010 World Cup Series in Bled, Olivia raced in the women's pair with Louisa Reeve, taking 5th place.  This followed their first place in the women's pair event at the GB Rowing Team Senior Trials in April.  She also raced in the women's eight in Bled, winning gold.  In Munich and Lucerne she was in the women's eight which won silver and bronze respectively.  This was a promising season for the women's eight who had shown consistency throughout the World Cup series.

Olivia was selected in the women's pair for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and finished 6th, an exceptional performance after qualifying the boat at the final Olympic Qualification Regatta just seven weeks before.
