Olympic Silver Medalist, Richard Hounslow, Visits Caldicott

16 November 2012

This morning, we were lucky enough to be visited by Richard Hounslow, the Olympic silver medallist in the C2 category where he canoed with David Florence. He also happens to be Ma'am Hounslow's son! During both the senior and junior chapel services, Richard showed the boys pieces of his equipment and his silver medal. The boys were also given the opportunity to ask him questions. A number of pertinent questions were asked including questions about his training and diet, his Olympic kit, and even how he felt about being beaten to the gold by his team mates Tim Baillie and Etienne Stott!
