Learnings From Five Olympic Games

I was the first British woman to be selected to complete at five Olympic Games in rowing, only the fifth in any sport. Over my 21 year career on the British Rowing Team I won 3 Olympic silver medals, 4 World Championship golds, and held two World records, all in different teams and under four different coaches.

LEARNINGS FROM FIVE OLYMPIC GAMES is the accumulation of my notes and learnings from over my 21 year career and the story of how I applied them.

Books are posted by Royal Mail 1st Class.

2nd ‘Sustainable’ Edition – this is printed on FSC sustainable paper (which means for every tree cut down, another must be replanted!).
