Josh Booth first appeared in the Australian Rowing Team in 2010 at Karapiro, New Zealand in the Men's Coxless Four alongside Fergus Pragnell, Bryn Coudraye and John Linke. Booth was later selected to compete for Australia in the London 2012 Olympic Games in the Men's Coxed Eight who finished sixth overall. The Victorian medical student appeared in World Rowing Cup 1 in both 2013 and 2014 but medical studies took over which meant he was unable to trial for future teams. Booth's ambitions to represent Australia have taken over though and the Melbourne-local has put his medical studies on hold for two years in a bid to represent Australia at an Olympic Games once again. In 2016, Booth was named in the Men's Four and went on to win an Olympic silver medal at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. In 2017/18, Booth relocated to Canberra to join the Reinhold Batschi Men's NTC and was selected into the Men's Eight for the World Rowing Cups 2 and 3. He won a silver medal at the World Rowing Cup 3 in Lucerne and was selected to represent Australia in the same boat class at the World Rowing Championships in 2018. He is just a few months away from completing his medical studies.
