Olympic rowing gold medallist Katherine Grainger has been confirmed as a last minute speaker at next month’s Abta Travel Convention.
Britain’s most successful female rower, with Olympic gold at London 2012 to add to silver medals from Sydney in 2000, Athens in 2004, and Beijing in 2008, Grainger will participate in a conference session on ‘maximising your performance’.
Grainger was appointed MBE in 2006 for services to rowing, and her achievements make her the first female British athlete – in any sport – to gain medals in four consecutive Olympic Games.
She is due to be interviewed on stage on October 12 as part of the event in Turkey.
Grainger will be talking about her experiences of London 2012 and revealing the key ingredients for sustaining elite performance over a longer period, such as teamwork, overcoming challenges, motivation, winning and the importance of communication.
Abta head of communications Victoria Bacon said: “The whole nation has been inspired this summer by watching athletes perform to their peak.
“We’re delighted to be able to bring some of that Olympic magic to the convention with Katherine sharing her exciting and inspiring story with us in person.
“As a multiple Olympic medallist Katherine is a top performer and there is no doubt that we’ll all be able to learn something from her focus and motivation.”
