Helen Glover is a two-time Olympic champion, three-time world champion and four-time European champion.
She is also a mother of three and the first British rower to return after giving birth to compete in the Olympics.
“Rowing is a very demanding sport that requires practice several times a day,” says sports reporter Pippa Field of The Telegraph.
“Helen, who has given birth to three children, has managed to balance all of this with the demands of a rowing program and still make it back onto the Olympic team.
“She continued to breastfeed this year into the early stages of this year…that’s quite remarkable.”
