Peter Reed

 

Peter Reed is a member of the Great Britain rowing squad and is Olympic Champion in the flagship coxless four. Despite only taking up rowing in his second year of University, after completing officer training in the Royal Navy, he reached the top of his sport just three years later, winning senior trials and replacing James Cracknell following his retirement from the Camelot-sponsored lead boat.

The 2004-2008 Olympiad saw Pete become Olympic Champion and double World Champion in the coxless fours, and incorporate an unbeaten run of 27 international races. In the nail-biting Olympic final in Beijing, the British crew made a dramatic push in the closing stages of the race to take the Gold medal.
