Well on Saturday we had the pleasure of meeting double Olympic Gold Medallist and quadruple World Champion and all round decent chap Andrew Triggs Hodge MBE. Now, I’m not saying that 2 Olympic gold medals and 4 World Championship medals isn’t a great accomplishment, but to have “meeting the Charity Oars” on your sporting CV can only be a good thing…!
In all seriousness, it was great for Andrew to spare us his time during the Seniors Championship, as he probably noticed my fitness regime may be somewhat missing, I’d like to put that down to the PE and also the RTC if that’s OK with you dear reader, I did of course regale him with tales of my sporting triumphs, sadly that didn’t take too long…!!
So with Gold in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, then Gold in 2012 in London, Andrew is now on course for the 2016 Olympics in Rio. For a full look at Andrews’ rowing accomplishments click here
It was a pleasure to chat with Andrew and to be able to chat about the health and fitness awareness that he and other top athletes are fully aware off these days. So the Charity Oars are signed by yet another Olympic Champion, maybe in 2016 we could get Andrew to sign the Charity Oars v2 and celebrate another Gold….!
