Pinsent imparts motivational wisdom to Square Mile rowers

FORMER Olympic rower Sir Matthew Pinsent was in the City on Tuesday evening, flashing his gold medals and imparting some motivational wisdom to the captains of the 50 teams – from the likes of Pinsent Mason, Everard Insurance, BNY Mellon and Withers – that have entered The Big Row challenge in September.

The challenge will see 100 crews race on machines to row a million metres in Spitalfields this September, to raise funds to build a floating healthcare clinic on Lake Malawi.

“I am looking forward to watching a thousand people go through the pain that I don’t have to anymore. Good luck to them” reflected Pinsent on Tuesday.
