Olympic Gold Medal Rower's Homecoming

15 August 2012, 08:32

Olympic gold winner Kat Copeland will visit her home rowing club in Stockton after picking up a Gold Medal in the 2012 Olympics.

The 21-year-old's still deciding what to do next - either committing to four more years of training or if she should take a degree in biology.

A celebration's happening at Tees Rowing Club where officials, fans and locals will gather for a party.

Kat grew up in Ingleby Barwick and went to Yarm School where she got into rowing.

School friends and teachers were expected at the party, including her first rowing coach Andy Clark.

Her ecstatic reaction to winning gold in the women's lightweight double sculls with Sophie Hosking has become one of the outstanding images of the London Olympics.

She told her partner: "We've won the Olympics. We're going to be on a stamp!''
