BIOGRAPHY

Jessica Eddie was part of the history-making women's eight boat which picked up silver at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Team GB's first ever medal in the event.

The Durham-born rower helped hold off the challenge from Romania to clinch second place, only finishing behind the USA on the Lagoa to help Team GB top the rowing medal table.

Eddie first represented Team GB in the women’s quad at the World Junior Championships in 2001 aged 17, but moved to the women’s eight for good in 2007.

She finished fifth in the boat at the Beijing and London Olympic Games and won world bronze in 2007 and 2011 as well as European silver in 2014.
