Competing with a new crew the following year, Vermeersch took home bronze from the Junior World Championships in Racice, Czech Republic. In 2012, Vermeersch was part of the women’s eight that won the Olympic Qualification Regatta, qualifying for the London Olympics where they placed sixth. 2013 was a big year for Vermeersch.
