BIOGRAPHY

2013 was an historic season for Leyden. At the World Rowing Junior Championships in Trakai, she claimed Britain's first gold medal of all-time in the women's single scull and her first World Junior title.

Her journey for GB began in earnest with back-to-back appearances at the Junior Championships in 2011 and 2012 and she has since gone on to represent the senior team, finishing fourth in the quadruple scull at the 2015 European Rowing Championships in Poznan and eighth at the World Championships.

Jessica hails from Todmorden in West Yorkshire and learnt to row at Hollingworth Lake.
