Olympic Gold Medalist Katherine Grainger
Getting rowing gold medalist Katherine Grainger, from London 2012, on board the book was a great addition as it nears completion. We met up at Henley Royal Regatta, and even this in the end, although planned, almost didn't happen. The chapter will go into all the detail of how the photo came about, and our first contact around the time Katherine decided to row at the next Olympics in Brazil in 2016. On a personal level Katherine has been incredibly supportive about the book, and has always asked how Mum is doing in her messages. Although we only had a few minutes today, she was absolutely lovely and great fun.
So after pretty 18 months the photography is done. There is still quite a bit of work to do on the book, so rather than rush it out I am thinking the beginning of October is the most likely publication date.
