Captain Heathcote in full stroke after Iraq

Captain Heathcote in full stroke after Iraq

All athletes suffer from nerves. But for Capt. Alastair Heathcote, confirmed yesterday as stroke of the British men's eight at this month's world championships, the jitters are not as bad nowadays.

Heathcote, who turns 30 on Saturday, spent the last five years as a British Army officer in Bosnia and Iraq, and found his return to rowing a calming experience.

Well done to both officers to make the British team.
No relation to Chris Heathcote, another wet-bob and ex-29? Holder of the heaviest man in a boat race (1990?) until this year. Dark Blue of course...
