In the third episode in the series related to the ‘Sporting Heritage of Disability and Women’s Sports’ project – supported by Sport England – Russell Todd is joined by five-times Olympian, multiple World Champion rower and Sporting Heritage Ambassador Frances Houghton MBE, and Katherine Robson, assistant curator at the River and Rowing Museum in Henley-on-Thames.

We discuss the role and value of sporting heritage to the rowing community and wider sporting family. Focusing on the relationship between Frances and the museum and what lessons can be learnt by the national governing bodies of sport and those actively engaged in competitive sport about how they regard and engage with their own collections and sporting stories.
