HISTORY ISN’T MADE IN ONE DAY. GIVING IT ALL UP......For the Moment
The FOR THE MOMENT campaign follows our top athletes on their very personal and challenging journey to Japan this summer. From Running to Volleyball and from Handball to Tennis, we will release a series of videos over the coming months uncovering the unseen side of some of our most exciting athletes' lives and the extraordinary work they have put in to push themselves past their limits and Reach Beyond.
After Helen Glover returned from Rio in 2016 with a glorious gold medal, emulating her achievement in London four years previously, she took the decision to step away from her beloved sport of rowing. In the years that followed she didn’t so much as sit in a boat or on a rowing machine, instead starting a family and dedicating her time to raising three children. During the 2020 lockdown she returned to the rowing machine to discover that she still had the fitness and passion to compete at the highest level. Helen hopes her incredible journey can help inspire people and show that having children should not mean an end to something that they are passionate about.
