Champ’s big idea

WINNING medals is not Erin Kennedy’s only talent. 

The 29-year-old cox from Henley, who was made an MBE in the New Year Honours list after winning gold at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics last summer, has developed a passion for growing giant vegetables. 

Kennedy, who is under 5ft 3in tall, posted pictures on Twitter of her holding a beetroot and a parsnip, both weighing more than 1,800g. 

She said: “Considering a change in career and wondering if I should just grow giant vegetables for a living.”
