Rowing star joins boys’ virtual training session

May 6th, 2020
Ollie Zeidler is the World Champion single sculler.

A rowing superstar made a special appearance in Monmouth School for Boys Rowing Club’s weekly core training session today.

Ollie Zeidler is the World Champion single sculler from Germany and a very strong prospect for the Tokyo Olympics.

Ollie joined the virtual call about halfway through and chatted with the boys for about half-an-hour.

He spoke about his transition from swimming to rowing, managing the delay in the Olympics by a year, and explaining what it’s really like having his dad as his coach.

The boys asked lots of excellent questions and it lifted their spirits, particularly with Henley having been cancelled this year.
