Royal Navy Will Support Peter Reed for London Olympics 2012

6 people rate this

Yesterday morning on board HMS PRESIDENT, I was delighted to announce that the Royal Navy has offered to continue to sponsor me as an athlete until London 2012. With this support, it was an easy decision to continue to row for the next 4 years to aim for another gold medal at my home Olympics.

Lucerne World Cup

 PeteReedCasual I am sure there is not a single sportsman in the world that enjoys losing. There are probably only a handful who don’t mind losing. For me, the toughest thing to take is the feeling that you were not good enough or you under-performed.

 This disappointing and irritating feeling has stayed with me this last week since our defeat in Lucerne. At this second World Cup, we raced without our selected stroke-man (Andrew Triggs Hodge) and bow-man (Tom James).
