Team Great Britain Olympic medallists Andy Triggs Hodge and Heather Fell's Earth Hour 2013 IWIYW challenge is a fun one. Each of them will leave their comfort zone and train in a different sport as part of the challenge if 300 people will switch off their lights in support of Earth Hour. Andy will train with Heather as a pentathlete and Heather will train with Andy as a rower. #EarthHour #IWIYW
WINDSOR, ENGLAND - AUGUST 04: Katherine Copeland and Sophie Hosking of Great Britain celebrate winning gold in the Lightweight Women's Double Sculls Final on Day 8 of the London 2012 Olympic Games at Eton Dorney on August 4, 2012
No doubt many of you like me have been glued to two weeks of brilliant Great Britain triumph in Rio at the Olympics. We are extremely proud of all our Olympians but none more so than our local athletes. As well as the Cotswold rowers our Hartpury based Dressage squad led by Carl Hester won a team silver to add to their gold from London and the heroic Charlotte Dujardin gloriously triumphed with her second individual gold. Congratulations to you all! This September children start a new school…
