Monday 18 March 2013
Olympic double sculls champion Anna Watkins has announced she is pregnant. The 30-year-old, who won gold at London 2012 with Katherine Grainger, is expecting a baby in September.
She wrote on Twitter: "It's true, I am expecting a baby in September. So excited!"
Watkins said in an interview that it would have "huge implications" for her rowing career. "It's anybody's guess what I'll be feeling like in the autumn. Right now it does seem far-fetched to come back but it's not impossible.
"The idea of staying at home with the baby is very attractive."
