What it takes to be an Olympic rower

Melissa Bray, Theo's mum, came in to talk to us about what is involved in being a rower, and particularly the huge commitment involved if you take it up seriously. Melissa and Theo will be heading to Rio shortly to work with the Olympic rowers.

The huge muscular strength and high levels of cardio fitness required to be a rower were really interesting to learn about. Not many of us realised how important lower body strength is in being a successful rower.

We were all really interested that 85,000 security personnel are involved in the Rio Olympics, and learning about the different venues and stadiums for all the different events.

Thanks so much for coming in and sharing with us Melissa. Have a wonderful time!
