Vicky Thornley and Katherine Grainger found a better spark in their re-formed women’s double scull partnership by qualifying in second place from the repechages. They led before being caught on the line by New Zealand.Thornley said:
”We were much better in the first half of the race today, that’s a step up from the heats yesterday. We have stuff to work on but now we can enjoy the final and see how much speed we can get out of the boat”.
“The book is a testament to friendship” (The Observer)
“… as much about people as it is about the physical and mental challenges of world-class rowing” (The Financial Times)
“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)
