Mosman's Rowena Meredith won an Olympic Bronze Medal in the Women's Quadruple Scull at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. At the 2022 Australian Rowing Championships, Meredith (representing Sydney University Boat Club), won the Open Women's Single Scull for the first time. Meredith went stroke for stroke with Women’s Four Olympic Champion Annabel McIntyre OAM through the 500m mark, yet pulled ahead through the final stages to win by 2.91 seconds.  Meredith spoke of her experience in Tokyo shaping her attitude to training and racing in tough conditions. “There were some whitecaps on the start line which makes it very challenging across the field, I think. It was firmly established in Tokyo that we can race and perform well in all conditions, and they will continue to run races in all conditions. Having another regatta like this just shows that we need to keep perfecting our skills in all weather, not just flat water.”
