He went on to win two silver medals at the 2012 and 2013 U23 World Championships in the men’s eight and pair respectively. Hill also contested the senior World Championships in 2013, taking out the B final in the men’s eight. Hill competed for South Australia at the 2013 Australian Youth Olympic Festival and had the honour of lighting the cauldron at the Opening Ceremony. In 2016, Hill was named in the Men's Four alongside Josh Booth, Josh Dunkley-Smith and Will Lockwood and raced at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games where he won an Olympic silver medal. In 2017, he has been named in the Men's Four, with Josh Hicks, Jack Hargreaves and Spencer Turrin. He went on to win gold in the Men's Four at the 2017 World Championships, the first time in 26 years that Australia had won the boat class. In 2018, Hill was once again named in the Men's Four, where he raced at World Cups 2 and 3, winning gold. He will race at the World Rowing Championships in 2018 in the same boat class. A proud South Australian, Hill's favourite place to row is Murray Bridge in South Australia and likes to listen to a bit of Shakira to get himself pumped before a race.
