Episode 38 in an interview with Olympic Rowing Gold Medalist Kat Copeland MBE.
We talk about loving her sport, coping with self-doubt, what made it possible for her to achieve Gold and also the unexpected effect that had on her.
I used to think success was an Olympic Gold Medal
Katherine was part of the Great Britain rowing team for 10 years and went to the Rio and London Olympic games, winning a gold medal in the lightweight women’s single scull in 2012. Katherine has also broken five world record times and won gold medals at the European Championships and World Cup regattas and medalled at the World Championships in the same boat class. Now retired, she plans to finish her degree in English, is currently training to be a qualified yoga teacher, and is co-starting a biscuit company which aims to promote and support inspiring women. Coming from a non-sporting background, Katherine is keen to promote the many benefits sport can bring, especially to young girls and women.
