Adam Freeman-Pask (born 19 June 1985) is a British International rower, World Bronze medalist, European Silver medalist and London 2012 Olympian.

Education[edit]

Born in Berkshire he went to The Windsor Boys' School before studying Natural Science at University of Bath and graduating in 2006. He then completed a Masters in Environmental Engineering and then a second Masters in Science Communication, both at Imperial College London.

International rowing career[edit]

Adam won his first International senior vest in 2008 at the World Rowing Championships in Linz, where he raced the Lightweight Men's Single Scull. He raced the same boat class the following season winning Bronze medals through the World Cup season but had unfortunate boat damage at the 2009 World Championships in Poznan, finishing 8th overall. Competing in both sweep and sculling disciplines Adam found top form in the 2011–2012 season setting a new record in the Wingfield Sculls knocking 17 seconds of the previous record time set by Peter Haining.[1] Following on Adam won the Scullers head, British Senior Trials,[2] and all three World Cups in different disciplines before obtaining selection for Team GB[3] at the London 2012 Games.[4] While competing for Great Britain Adam has also won Bronze at the 2013 World Rowing Championships in Chungju, South Korea[5] and Silver Medal at the 2012 European Rowing Championships in Varese, Italy.
