a winning combination

17th nov 2021

We were very lucky to host a winning combination at Coombe Village Hall last night: with a talk from Fran Houghton MBE (Olympic Silver Medallist) and Dr Robert Trehane Jones (rowing commentator).

Frances Houghton MBE is a 5 time Olympic rower, 4 times World Champion and 3 times Olympic Silver medallist! Plus, she has been gold medal winner at the world rowing championships on a number of years. She now mentors elite athletes and works as a professional chef

Dr Robert Treharne Jones is known as the “voice of rowing” and has been the senior race commentator with FISA, the international rowing federation, for almost 20 years.

It really was a fascinating evening and we felt blessed to be in such winning company!
