Grainger still to decide if she will ever row again
Katherine just soaking up all the adulation
ABERDEEN’S Katherine Grainger has refused to be drawn on whether her London 2012 triumph will be her last race.
After three successive silvers at the Olympics, the 36-year-old finally got the gold she craved so badly.
Grainger and partner Anna Watkins powered to victory in the double sculls, with Australia trailing in second and Poland a distant third.
The Scot has come a long way since learning to row on the River Dee.
This latest success is unquestionably the highlight of a storied career, that included six golds at World Championships.
But whether it will be her last victory remains to be seen.
Grainger said: “The whole journey has been up to this point and we haven’t thought beyond it.
“We are just going to enjoy the moment.”
