Olympian Helen Glover Drops in on Juniors

Posted In : Juniors Latest News


During a regular Sunday training session in April, the Bedford Juniors had a shock when London 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist Helen Glover walked past.

At first the juniors couldn’t believe it and it took the realisation from Nicola, Henley Stewards Coach, to confirm it was her. With this the juniors ran after her to say hello. Helen was very welcoming and said she watched them for a while in the singles waiting for one of them to fall in, thankfully none of them did. Many thanks to Helen Glover for making the Juniors day and posing for a picture.

At the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Helen won gold in the women's pair with crewmate Heather Stanning and was awarded the MBE in the 2013 New Year Honours list.

During the 2012 World Cup Series, Helen raced in the women's pair with crewmate Heather Stanning. The duo won a gold medal at all 3 of the World Cups.
