I started rowing when I was 14, year 9. I now train at Marlow Rowing Club.
My Dad was a rower and he encouraged me to go down to Marlow and get involved. We walked in to the park and I saw the rowers doing a sponsored row, it looked like so much fun! We spoke to the coaches and organised a learn to row course. Nowadays, my coach is probably my biggest inspiration, he is an Olympic Silver Medallist in the Lightweight Men’s 4.
The Olympics is a dream of mine and it is great to use his advice as I completely trust his opinion.
