Love for rowing: What I love most about rowing is that hard work is rewarded. It is a sport where if you put in extra hours and deliberate technical focus, it becomes clearly evident. And I love how there are always new challenges with the sport in finding new levels of pain in training and racing, and seeing how far you can push yourself each day.

Favourite quote for inspiration: “The real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back. That’s real glory. That’s the essence of it.” Vince Lombardi
