All 5 athletes were developed through GB Rowing Team's 'Start' Programme. The programme is a unique talent identification and development scheme which is funded by UK Sport with Lottery money and since 2006 has been sponsored by Siemens. The programme at Bath has identified 7 athletes for Great Britain teams in the past 7 years including two U23 World Champions and 3 World Silver Medallists. The athletes currently on the programme in Bath train at the University of Bath and at Minerva Bath Rowing Club.
