Olympic champions Etienne Stott and Tim Baillie wowed the members of a Bedford club with the story of their success at London 2012.
The two sportsmen were welcomed at the Bedford Breakfast Club yesterday (Wednesday, October 16), where they gave a captivating insight into the journey they took to become champions.
The rousing presentation from the C2 canoe slalom sportsmen included a number of points about their training progress which were interesting and relevant to the 50 business professionals present at the event, as well as the world of work at large.
Valerie Findlay, senior associate solicitor at Woodfines, said: “We are very grateful to Etienne and Tim for giving their time to speak to the Bedford Breakfast Club.
“They gave a fascinating view into the journey of becoming Olympic champions, whilst also providing an insight which was relevant to all business professionals in their own careers.”
