Harriet was a member of the Australian Women's Quad Scull that won gold at the World Rowing Final Olympic Qualification Regatta in Lucerne this past weekend, booking them a ticket for Tokyo.

She was Somerville House Rowing Captain in 2015 and rowed for the School from Years 8 to 12. Her hard work and dedication to making this team is inspirational to all Somerville rowers.

Good luck, your Somerville House community could not be happier for you and will be cheering you on at the Olympics!
