Constantine Michael Louloudis[1] (born 15 September 1991) is a Greek-British rower.

He was a King's Scholar at Eton College, where he learned to row in 2007 (his second year at the school) and was the stroke of the Eton eight that won at Henley Royal Regatta, the National Schools Regatta and the Schools' Head.[2] After Eton, he started a Classics degree at Trinity College, Oxford. He was in the six seat of the winning Oxford Blue boat at the 2011 Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race.[3] Later in 2011, he won the Men's Pairs, with George Nash, at the FISA World Rowing Under 23 Championships on the Bosbaan on 24 July 2011 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.[4]

He took a year out of his studies to train for and compete at the 2012 Summer Olympics, winning a bronze medal in the men's eight.[5][6][7] Louloudis then returned to his Oxford studies, rowing in the winning eights of a second and third Boat Race in 2013 and 2014,[8] before returning to the British eight, which he stroked to a gold medal at the 2014 World Rowing Championships.

Personal life[edit]

His father is Greek and comes from the island of Andros.[9] His mother is a daughter of the 20th Viscount Dillon.[10] Louloudis is currently reading classics[11] at Trinity College, Oxford.[7]
