Ten Olympic rowers, including the gold medallists Kat Copeland and Sophie Hosking, will compete in a charity regatta in Hexham on Saturday. The fun day is being organised by one of their GB teammates, Matt Wells. The money raised will go towards his foundation, set up to help talented young rowers.
Jessica Eddie from Durham City has been selected for the women's eights at the World Cup regattas, which means she is likely to be picked for the Olympics. She says it is not just selection on the team's minds, but when they get to London 2012, winning a gold medal.
