Olympic champions Anna Watkins meets some young rowing hopefuls

Olympic double sculls champion Anna Watkins visits the Mossbourne Community Academy in Hackney - a state school which has taken the unusual step of introducing a rowing programme for its students.

The school's rowing club took up the sport just four years ago and has two girls competing at Henley Women's Regatta.

The regatta, which begins on Friday, is one of the biggest events in the rowing calendar and has attracted a record number of entries, with crews competing from around the world.
