Jack Beaumont is a British Olympic rower and one of the country’s most promising young skullers.
As the son of Olympic alumni Peter Beaumont, Jack’s natural talent and strong work ethic has already shone through. At the age of 23, he has already shown an extremely strong backbone and strength of character when he flew to the Rio 2016 Olympics at the very last minute to make his Olympic debut in the men’s quads final when his teammate Graeme Thomas fell ill. He’s already a 2-time European Championship bronze medalist (quadruple skulls); U23 World Championship bronze medalist (double skulls); 3-time Rowing World Cup medalist (gold medal in Poznan, Poland; silver medal in Lucerne, Switzerland; bronze medal in Belgrade, Serbia); and his training’s going from strength to strength. At the first World Cup of 2017, he won the bronze medal in the men’s quad alongside teammates Tom Barras, Jonny Walton and John Collins.
‘What’s interesting about Jack is that, like so many elite athletes, he never takes his success in the sport for granted. He loves learning and, whilst partaking in his intense training schedule as a professional athlete (18 rowing sessions plus gym and tactical training each week), for the past 4 years, he’s been attending night school to complete his BSc. Criminology and Criminal Justice at UCL. An incredibly interesting, warm and driven guy… We can’t wait to see what he does next.’
