"If you win, it doesn't mean you did everything right. If you lose, it doesn't mean you did everything wrong."

Annie started rowing aged 17 in rural Cornwall and continued at Cambridge University, after which she went straight into the senior rowing team. Once Annie started rowing, she realised straight away that this was the sport for her: a discipline that rewards hard work and perseverance and it also tests you in so many different ways. Physically it’s incredibly demanding and technically it’s very difficult and it also really challenges your ability to work with others and get the most out of them. Annie loved working on the psychology of her sport and found it incredibly rewarding to get the mental side right.
