Intro

Sam Meijer is a double world U23 champion and a world Junior champion, looking to break into the senior GB Rowing Team.

Sam’s decorated international career started at the 2014 World Rowing Junior Championships, where he won silver in the men’s quadruple sculls in Hamburg, going one better in 2015 by taking gold in Rio de Janeiro.

In 2017, Sam won gold in his first World Rowing U23 Championships in Plovdiv as he and double sculls partner Seb Devereux put in an incredible sprint in the final 250m to overhaul France.

The following year, Sam won his second U23 gold, this time in the quadruple sculls alongside Rowan Law (with who he won his first world Junior medal), Josh Armstrong (with who he won his world Junior gold) and Matt Haywood.
