Ep34. Olympic Rower Annie Vernon On Preparing In The Best Way For You

I’m delighted to welcome Annie Vernon to the show. Annie is a 2x Olympian and multiple World champion rower. We discuss what you can learn from someone who as competed at the highest level. How to find a balance between competition and emulation of your peers. And one or two ways you can look to benefit from her experience back in your own motorsport. There are more parallels between rowing and racing than might appear on the surface. In Annie’s case that starts with her brother who actually used to work in F1. So as ever, sit back, grab a pen, grab a coffee and lets hear what Annie has to say.
