In the week of the Henley Royal Regatta, Saraha's guest is the Olympic and double world champion in rowing, Anna Watkins. Anna forged a formidable partnership with Katherine Grainger in the double scull and they have won gold in every World Cup regatta they have entered, the total winning streak currently standing at 23 races over three years. Having won back-to-back World titles in 2010 and 2011, the partnership memorably won gold at the London 2012 Olympics in front of an ecstatic home crowd. Anna was awarded the MBE in the 2013 New Year Honours list.
