Harry Leask won the silver medal in the men's quad sculls (M4x) at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

After learning to row as a junior in Scotland, he joined Leander Club in 2012 and went on to represented Great Britain at World U23 level three times, placing fifth in the men’s eight in 2015, fifth in the men’s quadruple sculls in 2016 and fourth in the quad in 2017.

In 2017 he also made his senior debut at the first World Cup of the year, finishing fourth in the men’s quad.

Harry made his mark at the GB Rowing Team senior and U23 trials in April 2018, finishing second among a strong group of senior scullers. That performance saw him selected in the single scull for the first two World Cup regattas of 2018, and the World Championships. At the Glasgow 2018 European Championships, he won a bronze medal alongside Jack Beaumont in the double scull, having replaced Angus Groom at late notice.

After racing in the single scull at the World Cup III regatta in 2019, Harry gained a seat in the quad in 2021, finishing fifth at the European Rowing Championships before taking a superb silver medal at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

In 2022, he finished fourth in the quad at the European Championships.
