SA | Adelaide Rowing Club

Angus Dawson is currently studying at the University of California Berkeley, but due to COVID returned to Australia and was consequently selected into Australia's Men's Eight in 2021. He's now based out of the Reinhold Batschi Men's NTC in Canberra. 

His career has soared on the international stage, where he clinched world championship titles at the U23 World Rowing Championships in 2019 and 2022. Dawson also showcased his skills at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, competing in the Australian men's eight.

While studying at UC Berkeley, he rowed in the varsity eight before returning to Australia due to Covid concerns, continuing to compete at the highest levels. Notably, Dawson won the national open men's coxless pair title with teammate Alexander Hill in 2021.

Dawson now sits in the seven seat of the Men's Coxed Eight.
