Gold medal rowers Steve Williams excited by Ipswich role

Olympic gold medal-winning rower Steve Williams tells BBC Radio Suffolk he will work with individuals and the team as a whole in his new role as Ipswich fitness consultant.

Williams was part of the coxless fours crew that triumphed in Athens and Beijing in 2004 and 2008.

Since then, he has climbed Everest, been to the North Pole and last month won TV's Dancing on Ice. 

Williams said: "It's for all of us to work together, use the experiences I've had, mix them with where the club is at and where we want to go to and even if I can just bring a fraction of a per cent to improving performance, then maybe that will be enough."
