Learnings From Five Olympic Games – Frances Houghton
Frances Houghton was the first British woman to be selected for five Olympic Games in rowing, and only the fifth woman in any sport to achieve this mark for Team GB. Over her 21 year career on the British Rowing Team she won 3 Olympic silver medals, 4 World Championship golds, and held two World records, all in different teams and under four different coaches.
Frances retired on the Olympic podium in Rio in 2016 having made history as a part of the first British Women’s Eight ever to win an Olympic medal.
“Lots of very good tips and ideas for athletes and coaches alike.” John Keogh, Head Coach of Women, Rowing Australia.
