Richard – you’re a known top athlete – How do you feel about your brother, Peter being here at the World Champs with you?
I think it’s awesome having my brother here. I watched him race yesterday and it was really quite emotional.
He’s in the Lightweight single sculls event
Yes and to be honest, I’d rather it was him than me. It’s a really tough event.
Is this his first year on the team?
No he’s been U23 before but it is his first senior worlds. He has really matured as an athlete and I am just proud that we are both here.
There’s no delicate way to put this. If you’re a regular Rowperfect reader, you’re just . . . well . . . smarter than most people looking to improve their rowing, sculling, coxing or coaching.
