Kat Copeland: Olympic champion happy out of the spotlight

Olympic lightweight double sculls champion Kat Copeland tells BBC Look North she is much happier away from the media focus that followed her after London 2012.

The Yarm rower hit the headlines with crew-mate Sophie Hosking achieved in their boat at Eton Dorney, but afterwards decided to take a break from the sport.

Now back in action, Copeland has a new partner in Imogen Walsh after Hosking retired and has picked up World Cup gold and European Championships bronze medals during 2014 so far.
