After the joy of being selected for her third Olympic Games, it has been back to work for Debbie Flood this week.

The Guiseley rower has been busy preparing for this weekend’s final World Cup meeting of the year in Munich.

Flood, who competed in the women’s eight at the last World Cup regatta in Lucerne last month, will be racing in her Olympic event - the women’s quad.

The 31-year-old, who won silver medals at the Athens and Beijing Olympics in the quad, will be joined in Munich and the Olympics by Melanie Wilson, Beth Rodford and Frances Houghton.

Great Britain Rowing team performance director David Tanner has stated that Britain’s Games’ ambition in the sport is to equal the tally of six medals won in Beijing.

And he will be eyeing the competition in Munich as a final staging post for a team he has described as “certainly the strongest team the GB Rowing Team has ever put on the water.”

With his Olympic selection confirmed at Windsor last week, it is also back to work for Hebden’s Andy Hodge.

His focus is also on Munich.

Hodge will again be at stroke for the Great Britain men’s four as they bid to pick up their third gold medal of the year after scoring victories in Belgrade and Lucerne.

Although the crew of Hodge, Tom James, Pete Reed and Alex Gregory are determined to put down a marker for next month’s London Olympics, they know the competition will be tough.

Hodge, who along with Reed and James won Olympic gold in Beijing four years ago in a crew completed by Steve Williams, is philosophical about the task ahead.

“We know the job in hand and we’ve got to deliver what we’ve been training to do for the past four years,” Hodge said.

“The conditions played a big part in what we did in Lucerne (the world's best time) but we still had to go out and do it.

“It’s great to know we’ve got that speed, and we learned a lot coming out of that regatta, but we all had open minds going into it.

“We didn’t know where the Aussies were and if we are in touching distance now then it gives me a lot of confidence for the Olympics.

“Given the right conditions, I’m sure we can go faster but at the end of the day its about beating the other boats to the line.”
