“It is a tribute to Paul and also to the outstanding coaching in the GB Rowing Team’s START Programme, where both Helen and Heather began their Olympic journey.”
During his time at Bath, Stannard also worked with Vicky Thornley who won World under-23 gold in 2009 and then World Championships bronze in 2011 in the women’s eight before going on to qualify for the 2012 Games.
Stannard is currently men’s performance coach for GB Rowing Team and this summer helped the British men’s four to a bronze medal at the World under-23 Championships.
