Gilchrist Maclagan was one of six Old Etonians in the Leander Olympic eight in 1908 and an Olympic gold medal was a fitting reward for his outstanding career as a Cox. While he was at Magdalen College, he coxed the Oxford boat for four years (1899-1902) and he steered the Leander boat at Henley from 1899 to 1908, during which period he set the record of being the only man to be in the winning crew in the Grand six times. Maclagan was killed in action while serving as a lieutenant in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment.
