With Olympic gold at London 2012 to add to her silver medals from Sydney in 2000, Athens in 2004, and Beijing in 2008, as well as six world championships titles in her collection, Katherine is Britain’s most successful female rower.

A NEW CHAPTER BEGINS

In September 2014, Katherine returned to full-time training with the GB Rowing Squad with Rio 2016 Olympics in her sights.

 

Katherine competed in her first international event since London 2012 at the end of May 2015: the European Championships in Poznan, Poland. Katherine and new rowing partner in the double sculls, Vicky Thornley came home with a Bronze medal behind World Champions Poland and Lithuania. Katherine told the BBC “We really are a work in progress, but to get on the podium is a start”.

“a beautifully crafted tale of a singular woman… an important and long overdue book… its pages are rich with emotion; passion, anger and determination ooze out of the text.” (Rowing & Regatta Magazine)
