Rowe by Name, Rower by Nature

BGS Old Boy Miller Rowe ’17 is preparing to travel to Europe after being selected to row for Australia in international competition. 

Rowe, 21, will compete in the Men’s Coxed Four at the 2022 Under 23 World Rowing Championships in Italy in the final week of July. 

The former BGS student earned his spot after strong performances at the Australian Under 23 Rowing Championships earlier this year. 

Rowe won gold in the Men’s Coxless Pair and silver in both the Men's Coxless Four and Men's Coxed Eight. 

The World Rowing Championships will be a return to the international stage for Rowe, who has been unable to compete at world regattas for the past two years due to restrictions caused by the pandemic. 

Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, however, Rowe won gold in the men’s Coxless Pairs at the 2019 Under 21 Trans-Tasman Regatta in New Zealand, and bronze in the men’s Coxed Four at the 2018 Under 19 World Rowing Championships in the Czech Republic. 

Rowing Australia Deputy Performance Director Jaime Fernandez said it was wonderful to be able to send crews to compete at international events. 

“It cannot be underestimated the significant challenges and hurdles that our young athletes, their coaches and families have had to overcome over the past two years to get to these Trials,” Fernandez said. 

As the privilege of representing Australia is self-funded, Rowe’s family is raising money via GoFundMe for his flights, accommodation and rowing fees.
