Meteoric rise for rower Helen Glover

In the three years since she started rowing, Cornwall's Helen Glover has undergone a remarkable rise to become one of the stars of Great Britain's elite squad.

Alongside Heather Stanning in the women's pair, Helen is tipped for a place on the podium at next summer's Olympic Games.

As part of the BBC's Olympic Dreams series, BBC Spotlight's Phil Tuckett has been to meet Helen and her family.
