Olympic legacy: Helen Glover says more women are taking up sport

Olympic gold medallist rower Helen Glover says that one of the most important elements of the 2012 legacy has been an increase in the number of women and girls playing sport.

Talking to BBC Radio Cornwall, Glover said she was also aware of athletes joining the Start talent-spotting programme  which she had been through and reflected on her status as a role model for young athletes.
