Rowing Canada has tapped veteran Canadian lightweight Iain Brambell as its new high-performance director. The three-time Olympian and Beijing bronze medalist in the lightweight men’s four succeeds Peter Cookson, who now serves as director of sport and pathway development for the federation. Brambell has worked in sport since retiring in 2008, most recently supporting national sport organizations as a high-performance adviser at Canada’s Own the Podium program. “I am looking forward to working with our athletes, coaches, and staff to continue Canada’s tradition of excellence both on and off the water,” said Brambell.
