This our second podcast in a series of conversations we will be having with coaches, athletes, coxes, physiologists and others involved in the sport. This podcast features Filip Ljubicic and Henry Fieldman talking about how coxes can have impacts off and on the water.

He went to school locally, and the on to do his undergraduate degree in Zoology at Imperial College. He then went on to complete two masters’ degrees, first at UCL and then at the University of Cambridge. During his time at university, Henry represented Great Britain at the  U23 World Championships on multiple occasions, while also competing for his university teams, culminating in the Boat Race for Cambridge.

Alongside his coxing commitments, Henry has developed ‘Coxing Consultancy’ which is a service designed to help coach coxswains from all over the world. Through this service, he acts as ‘coxing coach’ to Cambridge University Boat Club. Henry now trains full time in the national team and dreams of representing his country at the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020.
