Having learned to row at Trinity College, Cambridge, in 2014, Grant has had a meteoric rise to the top, getting her first taste of international success in the Cambridge University Women’s BC eight that took gold at the 2015 European Universities Rowing Championships.
In 2016, Grant rowed in the CUWBC lightweight eight and reserve boat before moving up to the Blue Boat for both the 2017 and 2018 Women’s Boat Races, won by Cambridge. In 2017 she also competed in the lightweight women’s quad at the World Rowing U23 Championships in Plovdiv, finishing fifth.
Later in 2018, alongside training to be a doctor, Grant was selected to row the lightweight single scull at the first World Cup of the year in Belgrade, finishing an impressive fourth place. She went on to row in the same boat class at the World Rowing U23 Championships in Poznan, taking a dominant gold by nearly two lengths.
Grant partnered Ellie Piggott in the lightweight double sculls at the 2019 European Championships and second World Cup, finishing 4th and 8th respectively. She won another superb gold medal in the lightweight single sculls at the third World Cup of the season, before claiming World Championships bronze with Emily Craig in the lightweight double.
