Anna Watkins Announces She is Pregnant

25th March 2013

Olympic double skulls champion and motivational speaker, Anna Watkins, has announced that she is pregnant.

The 30 year old rower, who won Gold alongside her team-mate Catherine Grainger, announced that she is due in September 2013 and is very excited about the news. She acknowledged that her pregnancy will make it more difficult for her to return to rowing saying that it would have “huge implications”.

Anna was quoted saying “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. Whatever comes next has to be a bigger challenge than the last one, whether that's doing a single scull or doing two events.”

She added that “Right now, the idea of staying at home with the baby is very attractive.”
