Helen Glover video profile – bidding for glory five years and three children after her last Olympics

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Helen Glover video profile – bidding for glory five years and three children after her last Olympics” – below is their description.

Helen Glover is a two-time Olympic champion, triple world champion and quadruple European champion.

She is also a mother to three children and the first British female rower to come back to compete at an Olympic Games after giving birth.

“Rowing is a very demanding sport, involving training several times a day,” says Telegraph’s Sport reporter Pippa Field.

“Helen, having given birth to three children, has managed to balance all this with the demands of a rowing programme and still make it back onto the Olympic team.

“She was still breastfeeding into the early stages of this year… it’s something quite remarkable.”
