Lola Anderson profile image

Lola became inspired by Olympic sport watching London 2012 on TV and wrote in her diary that she wanted to win an Olympic medal one day.

She read it back and thought it sounded ridiculous so she ripped it out and threw it in the bin. Her Dad found the note and gave it back to her telling her to follow her dream. He passed away shortly after and she’s since dedicated her rowing career to his memory. Lola became World Champion in 2023 in the Women’s quad – the first time GB has won gold in that boat class since 2010.
