RIO…..Here we come!

Having had emotional send offs from family  and Wey Kayak club members, watered the garden one more time and said her farewells to the hens,  Rachel has flown to Rio with the rest of the Kayaking team, to spend 2 weeks in the pre-olympic holding camp. It was a very long flight, eased by the long awaited arrival of another  Harry Potter volume!

TEAM GB

Rachel is very proud to have been  selected to be part of Team GB, to represent her sport, her country at the Rio Olympics 2016. A dream come true!
