Sabbatical Season

Josh Dunkley-Smith

When Australian double Olympic silver medallist Josh Dunkley-Smith cites his reasons for taking a year out of competitive rowing, the one you wouldn’t expect is rain.

“Aside from seeing family and spending time with my girlfriend, the one thing I’m looking forward to is being in Melbourne for the whole of this winter,” he says. “I know at some point it will be really rainy and grey, typical Melbourne weather, and I’ll probably enjoy it for the first couple of weeks. We train domestically through the summer here and just as it really starts turning to winter we travel over to Europe for a bit of time there, so I get the European summer. I haven’t technically had a proper winter in all that time.” Mercantile Rowing Club graduate Dunkley- Smith earned his first senior racing kit in 2009 when, despite having just missed the cut for the senior A team, he was selected for the under-23s and then promoted late in the season. “I competed overseas in the under-23 eight in Racice,” he says, “then the guy in the senior eight actually got injured. I’d come back to Australia but went back to Europe and competed in the senior team as well.”
