London 2012 Olympic medallist Mark Hunter has now stopped competing, but has decided to fill his time coaching and training the next generation.

As the performance director for London Youth Rowing  , one of Mark's responsibilities is to encourage more young people to get into the sport he loves so much.

Starting his career in the east of the capital as a teenager, he now sees it as a 'full circle' situation, and only right that he 'gives back to the sport' he loves.
