We are delighted that Olympic gold medalist Paul Bennett is able to join us at our Year 13 Presentation Evening
Paul Bennett (from Leeds) enjoyed a memorable Olympic debut as he added Rio 2016 gold to the back-to-back World Championship titles he had won with the men’s eight.
The Oxford Blue is in his fourth season with the senior squad, having made his GB Rowing Team debut in the first international race of the Rio Olympiad.
Paul, the tallest rower in the GB squad at 6’8”, has also won European silver and bronze plus a host of World Cup medals during an impressive start to his international career.
Paul graduated from King’s College London in 2012 with a first-class honours degree in Mathematics. He then studied a masters degree in Computer Science at Oxford University and raced in the victorious Dark Blue boat at the Boat Race in 2013.
