A two-time World Champion and Olympic silver medallist rower, Annie’s passions lie in empowering others and understanding how they tick.


As an athlete, she was fascinated by the inner workings of the mind and how that determined her physical performance, and since retiring she has taken this interest a giant leap further by publishing Mind Games, which won the General Outstanding Sports Writing Award at the 2020 Telegraph British Sport Book Awards.
