Richard Hounslow is one half of the Olympic silver medal winning C2 pair, after success alongside David Florence at London 2012.
The pair have been competing together since 2009 and have won multiple World Championship medals in that time; taking bronze in 2010, gold in 2013. Their 2013 triumph was the first time a British boat had taken the C2 World title.
Richard, who has a degree in sports science and management, was one of the first athletes to double up and compete in both the men’s K1 and C2 classes. He is now focusing all his efforts on the C2 for Rio 2016.
