Mark Hunter MBE

Olympic Rower 2008, Beijing Gold Medalist

After adding a Silver medal from London 2012 to his 2008 Olympics Gold medal, Mark retired from being a full time athlete. He was determined to experience something completely different and out of his comfort zone so he worked in London as a Project Manager. Mark then moved on to the role as Programme Director at London Youth Rowing, a youth charity initiative. He is currently interim CEO, running the coaching program.

"You can come from a normal working-class family and still succeed"

In detail

Mark started rowing aged 14, having played county football, swum and tried various martial arts before deciding to direct all his time and effort into rowing. If life had taken a different turn, Mark Hunter would now be plying his trade on the River Thames as a licensed waterman and lighterman - an ancient profession to which he was apprenticed for six years before gaining the Freeman of the Thames qualification to skipper passenger and freight boats on London's waterway. During his year off after the 2008 Olympics, he was an Assistant Coach of UCLA Women's rowing program.
