One of the country's most successful rowers and Olympic gold medallist, Tim Foster made a bright start to his career when he competed in the World Rowing Junior Championships in 1987 and 1988. In fact he became the first Briton to win a gold medal at two consecutive championships!
He took to life in the senior squad with ease and in 1996 was part of the coxless fours that won bronze at the Atlanta Olympic Games. Following this, he continued with his studies at Oxford University and competed in the world famous Boat Race in 1997.
1997 also saw him win a seat in the coxless four boat alongside Steve Redgrave, Matthew Pinsent and James Cracknell. Despite suffering from a couple of setbacks, including needing back surgery, Tim made the final crew that went on to win a triumphant gold medal at the Sydney 2000 Olympics. For this achievement he was awarded the MBE.
Since retiring from the sport in 2001 Tim has coached a number of different rowing teams including the Great Britain Rowing Team and the Swiss National Rowing Team.
