Army and Navy Sports Awards for GB rowers
Military members of the GB Rowing Team have been recognised for their achievements at the Olympic and Paralympic Games at the Army and Navy Sports Awards.
Captain Heather Stanning brought the nation to its feet winning Team GB’s first gold of the Games with Helen Glover in the women’s pair and was awarded Sportswoman of the Year at the Army Sports Awards at Army headquarters last week.
And fellow Army officer Captain Nick Beighton earned the Adaptive Award after finishing an impressive fourth in the Paralympic double scull final – just 0.2 seconds off bronze in only his second season of international rowing after first picking up oars in 2010.
Olympic gold medallist in the men’s four, Navy officer Pete Reed, was presented with an Outstanding Achievement Award at the Annual Navy Sports Awards last week after winning his second-successive Olympic title.
