Lauren won silver in the women’s eight at both the 2022 and 2023 European Rowing Championships.
She started rowing when she was 14 years old when a PE teacher at St Bede’s Comprehensive School entered her in a local indoor rowing competition.
This led to her joining the ‘High Performance Programme’ aimed at juniors in her local area who showed potential, run by Wade Hall-Craggs and students at Durham University, where she studied Sport Exercise and Physical Activity.
She then joined her local rowing club and attended her first Junior World Rowing Championships in 2016. She was selected for the U23 World Championship from 2017-2019, winning gold in the coxless four at the last of these.
Lauren’s senior debut was at World Cup III in 2021 also in the four.
She raced in the four again at World Cup III in 2022. She moved into the eight for the 2022 European Rowing Championships, where she won silver, a result she repeated at the 2023 Europeans, still in the eight.
