Some more sparkle for Olympic rower

Some more sparkle for Olympic rower

CONGRATULATIONS to Vicky Thornley and Rick Egington who have got engaged.

The Olympic rowers, who have both been captain of Leander Club in Henley, have been together for nine years.

Vicky certainly seemed pleased to have finally been asked the question as she posted a picture of the couple on Instagram with the message: “I don’t know about Rick but the ring was definitely worth the nine-year wait.”

Vicky, 31, won a silver medal with Katherine Grainger in the women’s double scull at the Rio Oympics in 2016 and is hoping to compete in Tokyo in 2020.

Rick, 39, won a silver medal at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and bronze at London 2012, both in the men’s eight.
