Inspiring Rowing at Rio

Inspring stuff!  5 gongs bagged in the Rowing events at Rio; 3 gold and 2 silver.  Brilliant.  We're hoping that Team GB's rowing success will inspire folks to have a go at rowing (once the hangover's gone!).  Kath Grainger's success is particularly inspirational. Read her story HERE.
