Description

Victoria Thornley competed in rowing at the 2012, 2016 and 2020 Olympics, winning a silver medal for GB with Katherine Grainger in the women's double sculls in Rio while she narrowly missed out on a medal in Tokyo in 2021, finishing fourth in the single sculls. She also won bronze and silver at the World Championships and gold, silver and bronze medals at the European Championships during her illustrious career.

Now retired she is embracing ultra-running - not the obvious choice for a woman standing at 6ft 3. I wanted to chat to her about the highs and lows of the Olympics, how she learnt to calm her nerves on the start line, how she dealt with over-training syndrome and about the Sporting Giants campaign that took her from showjumper to Olympic rower.
