Conlin McCabe (born August 20, 1990) is a Canadian rower. He won a silver medal at the 2012 Olympic games and two gold medals at the 2015 Pan American Games.

Born in Brockville, Ontario, McCabe rowed for the University of Washington from 2009 to 2013 (after taking a year off for the Olympics), helping the Huskies win three national championships. McCabe majored in Geography while at Washington.[1] He also came in first at the 2011 CRASH-B Sprints, a 2000-metre indoor rowing race with a time of 5:48.0. This made McCabe the first Canadian to ever win a CRASH-B competition in the Men's Open category.

McCabe's international racing career started at the World Rowing Junior Championships. He placed fourth in the coxed Pair in 2006 and won a silver medal in the coxless pair in 2007 with Anthony Jacob. McCabe went on to compete at two Under-23 World Championships, winning a silver in 2010 in the coxless pair (also with Jacob) and finishing fourth in the coxless four in 2009.

He won a silver medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in the men's eights with Andrew Byrnes, Gabriel Bergen, Jeremiah Brown, Will Crothers, Douglas Csima, Robert Gibson, Malcolm Howard and Brian Price.[2]

In June 2016, he was officially named to Canada's 2016 Olympic team.[3]
