Athlete Biography

Joshua Booth will make his second Olympic Games appearance at Rio, making a late move from the men’s eight into the coxless four.

The Victorian made his senior international debut in 2010 in the men's four alongside Fergus Pragnell, Bryn Coudraye and John Linke, whilst also competing in the U/23 World Championships in the men's eight.

In March 2012, Josh Booth was named in the men's eight crew that would go on to earn Olympic nomination for the London Games and finish sixth overall in the final.

Booth, who also studies medicine, has competed at two World Championship campaigns, finishing 7th in the four in 2010 and 4th in the eight in 2011.

Booth appeared in World Rowing Cup 1 in both 2013 and 2014 but medical studies took over which meant he was unable to trial for future teams. The 25-year-old decided to put his medical studies on hold for two years, which provided to be a fantastic decision as he is selected in his second Olympic Team.
