Born in Yeovil, Royal Artillery officer Heather Stanning joined Helen Glover in the women’s pair in 2010 and they immediately went from strength to strength.

Stanning and Glover won gold at the 2012 Olympics in London, consequently receiving an MBE in the 2013 New Year Honours List.

Stanning completed her set of international titles in 2015 when she won gold at the European Championships, before following that up with a second gold - and fourth World Championship medal in total - in France.

The duo then became the first British female athletes to defend an Olympic rowing title, going unbeaten for four years in the run-up to Rio 2016, before securing gold on the Lago.
