In a sport like ours things can go wrong in the blink of an eye

Olympic champion Etienne Stott talked to Kenwood Travel about his recent gold medal at London 2012, his concentration techniques and a serious shoulder injury he suffered just 18 months before the Games.

The Bedford Olympian visited Kenwood Travel's premises in London to give a first-hand account of his recent holiday to the Maldives, a trip Kenwood Travel were only to proud to arrange for him.

In the interview, Etienne also described his victory in the kayaking C2 event with Tim Baillie: “Getting into the final in the Olympics is a very big deal, in a sport like ours that is very unpredictable, things can go wrong very much in the blink of an eye.

“Making it into each round is very, very important, but once you’re in the final you know it’s possible to get a medal out of it.”
