Deputy Chair of British Rowing Kate O’Sullivan (Mineral Engineering 1985) first stepped into a boat in Roundhay Park in 1981. She has gone on to participate, coach and lead in the sport for 40 years.

After changing the fortunes of rowers at all levels, from Olympians to first-timers, Kate has been awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM) in recognition of her contributions.

In our latest podcast episode, we caught up with Kate to discuss her time rowing at Leeds, her love of the sport, and British prospects ahead of Tokyo 2020.
