CUBC congratulates Imogen Grant, winner of World Rowing’s Women’s Crew of the Year

After a dominant season where Imogen and partner Emily Craig won every race they entered, repeated their victories in the European and World Championships, and set a World Best Time, it was perhaps not a surprise that they were awarded World Rowing’s Women’s Crew of the Year.

Imogen said: “Being awarded World Rowing Women’s Crew of the Year is so special and it’s such an accolade, especially when you look at the crews that have won it before us. It’s been a massively memorable season after the disappointment of finishing fourth with the tight photo finish in Tokyo. It felt so gratifying to sprint through and win the Varese World Cup the day after we set a World Best Time. It was also a privilege to win the world cup season this year and share that success with Emily. Defending our World title was really special too – and it’s made me even more excited for the coming season!”

Imogen and Emily will look towards another dominant season, and enter 2024 as favourites for the Paris Olympic Games.
