Andrew Triggs Hodge – the fastest man on Clean Water?


Nearly one year on from the Olympics and I was lucky enough to revive the Olympic spirit and the ‘Dorney roar’ for the World Rowing Cup at Eton Dorney, just west of London.

I was there to support the exciting partnership with World Rowing – a partnership for clean water! Rowing is a sport that needs high quality clean water and many rowers, from amateurs to top athletes, are strongly committed to help conserve our precious water resources. So rowing’s partnership with WWF – and our global programme of freshwater conservation – make perfect sense.

You can hear a bit more about how we work with rowing in this video of myself and Matt Smith, the Executive Director of World Rowing.

While I was there on Friday I watched double Gold Olympian and WWF supporter Andrew Triggs Hodge in action in his Eight, battling through his preliminary race.

Afterwards, I had the chance to ask Andy some questions about his background, connection with water, how it feels to be back at Eton Dorney and what he thinks about the partnership.

I had such a great time that the whole family came back on Sunday to add our voices to the Dorney Roar and cheer home the GBR winners… including Andrew Triggs Hodge!
