Committee member - Harrisen Leckenby
Harrisen, nicknamed ANU's lightest, has been rowing since he was 14 and has managed to maintain the same weight throughout his entire rowing career at 62 kilos. This is his first year on the committee and he is very keen to promote growth in all aspects of the boat club. Harrisen is holding onto the day when ergos are weight calculated so he can finally achieve his goal of beating the captain, Doug Horn.
