Molly Goodman made her international debut in 2011 at the Junior World Championships in the quad sculls. In 2013 she was fourth in the final of the women’s eight at the U23 World Championships. Goodman made her first senior A team in 2014 competing at the Lucerne World Cup and the World Championships in the women’s eight.
In 2015, Goodman rowed in the Women’s Pair with Genevieve Horton, while in 2016 she was in Australia’s Women’s Eight at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. In 2017, she was named in the Women’s Four, alongside Lucy Stephan, Sarah Hawe and Katrina Werry. She went on to win three gold medals in the season – winning at World Rowing Cups 2 and 3, as well as at the 2017 World Rowing Championships. She rounded off 2017, alongside her crew, by claiming the 2017 Female Crew of the Year at the 2017 Hancock Prospecting Rower of the Year Awards.
In 2018, Goodman was once again selected to represent Australia, in the Women’s Four, at World Rowing Cups 2 and 3 and World Rowing Championships. Goodman also stroked Australia’s Women’s Eight to victory in the Remenham Challenge Cup at the 2018 Henley Royal Regatta.
Based at the Hancock Prospecting Women’s NTC in Penrith, Goodman is currently studying a Batchelor of Criminology, names Aiguebelette in France as her favourite rowing venue and says her favourite songs to listen to before racing are either ‘Would I Lie to You’ by Charles & Eddie or ‘Lean on Me’ by Billy Withers.
Goodman was selected to row in the Women’s Eight for the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The crew made the A-final and finished in 5th place.
