Kyra Edwards is a rower on the GB national team and she shares her story with us about rowing in Los Angeles, breaking into the GB team, chasing Olympic qualification and being an LGBT figure in sport. Kyra also speaks to us about the challenges she has faced, including losing a teammate to suicide and realising the importance of good mental health in such a physically and psychologically demanding sport. We appreciate Kyra speaking so openly with us about her inspiring and touching story.
