Beyond the Boat

Annie is a qualified physiotherapist, and would like to pursue this as a career when she finishes rowing. Her sporting idol is Jessica Ennis Hill: “She is a successful sportsperson as well as an amazing mother”.

She would invite Usain Bolt, Katherine Heigl and Beyonce to her dream dinner party, and her ideal post-competition food is a takeaway curry.

Annie is Lottery funded through UK Sport.
