BEN CANHAM HAS BEEN A NATIONAL ROWING TEAM REPRESENTATIVE FOR AUSTRALIA SINCE 2019.
WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE YOUR SPORT?
My sporting journey started in Elementary school in Illinois, USA, playing basketball at recess and lunch with my friends. After moving around the world with my family I was introduced to rowing at Brighton Grammar School under the leadership of Sandy Mitchell in year 9. I split my time evenly between AFL, basketball and rowing. The challenges and team-oriented nature that is unique to rowing, ultimately lead to my rowing journey becoming a passion and the beginning of an Olympic dream.
WHAT’S BEEN YOUR MOST MEMORABLE PERFORMANCE, AND WHY?
This is always a tricky one to pick but right now as it is still relatively fresh I am going to have to pick the 2022 World Championship final. After having a bit of a rocky start in our heat, not putting down our best performance, we were able to use the repechage as a springboard into the final. It was great to be able to come away from my first senior World Championship with a medal in the men's eight.
