Rowing athlete from London

Felix Kwok is an 18-year-old rower from Hampstead, London. He is the first-team rowing captain at St Paul's School, where he started rowing in his final year, and also scooped men’s eight junior gold for Great Britain at last year’s Coupe de la Jeunesse in Italy. He represented the Junior GB team in Italy one year early after also being catapulted into his school’s first-team boat prematurely, an experience that paved the way for his ascent to leading the school’s principal boat. You can find out more about Felix in the video below.

We asked Felix how the fundraising boost will help him 

“It’s  incredible – I’m really proud to be nominated for the support and actually get the award, and it means a lot to be recognised,” he said. “There’s not a whole lot of money in the sport or recognition because it’s not broadcasted in the same way other sports are, so to be able to be recognised with the effort you put in is really amazing."
