Student Inspirations – Joe Lynch

I had never thought of rowing as a sport that I was ever going to do, but last November Mr Holden told me that a Sport England scout had asked if anyone had the potential to be a rower and he put me forward.

Now after several tests and trials I am on the Great Britain Rowing World Class Start programme. I have to go on rowing camps every month in Nottingham, and the overall aim is to go to the 2016 Olympics in Rio representing Great Britain.

I am tested all the time by doing skills and rowing, and I have to continue improving at a certain rate. World Class Start have coaches, dieticians, nutritionists, doctors, sports psychologists, physiotherapists and we are sponsored by Siemens and the National Lottery.
