President's Profile

Eleanor Shearer is a second year MPhil student in Political Theory at Nuffield College. She grew up in London, taking up rowing in her final two years at school, when she learnt to scull at Westminster School Boat Club. During her final year at WSBC, she was made Head of Girls Water, and competed for the club at Head of the Charles 2013, in a 4+, and Schools' Head of the River 2014 in a Mixed 4x. 

Ellie moved to Oxford in 2014 to study a BA in History and Politics, where she continued her involvement in rowing with Balliol College Boat Club. After deciding to switch to coxing, she represented Balliol in Torpids and Summer Eights regattas.

Her ambition led her to join the Oxford Women's Lightweight Rowing Club, where she coxed their reserve crew, Tethys, for the 2015-16 season. In 2015-16, she was also Vice Captain of the Oxford DanceSport Team, winning a Half Blue for dancing competitive Ballroom and Latin dance in the Varsity Match against Cambridge. 

Joining OUWBC in the 2016-7 season, she has coxed both the Blue Boat in 2017 and Osiris in 2018. Back for her third year with the squad, Ellie says: 

"It is a privilege to be leading OUWBC for the 2019 season. This team has been like a family to me over the last few years, and I wanted to take on the Presidency so that I could help deliver the same incredible experience that I have had to our current generation of athletes - as well as those in the years to come. We laid some strong foundations last year and I am excited to see how this year's team can build on them over the course of the season."
