Earlier this year, Helene Raynsford announced her retirement from rowing due to ill health. She has now returned to good health and is eager to start competitive rowing again in the hope of being considered for GB's World Championship Paralympic Team.

By the time the World Championship Paralympic's happen, Helene would only have been training for three months with GB rowing, so she is not expecting any gold medals winning performances.
