Announcement from Rowing Australia

It is with regret that Rowing Australia advises that Chris O’Brien has tendered his resignation from the organisation.

Chris is a highly successful elite coach, bringing twenty years of national and international rowing experience during his time working with the Australian Rowing Team.  In his time coaching Australian national team crews he has had success at both Olympic Games and World Rowing Championships.

Chris has made a positive impact on the athletes and coaches he has worked with, particularly the men’s sweep crews, including coaching Olympic crews to two golds and two silver medals since 2004. He is a dedicated coach and Rowing Australia is grateful for all he has done for Australian rowing and we wish him all the very best in the next stage of his career.
