Hugh Matheson & Christopher Dodd
Hugh Matheson was a British oarsman representing his country at the Olympics in 1972, 1976 and 1980. He has remained closely in touch with the sport as a journalist and commentator ever since. Chris Dodd was The Guardian’s rowing correspondent from 1970. He was editor of Regatta magazine and wrote The Story of World Rowing (Hutchinson) and Pieces of Eight, covering Matheson’s own Olympic adventures. Together Matheson and Dodd wrote More Power, the unmissable story of one man’s quest for glory, which sets out to unlock the secrets of Jurgen Grobler: the finest coach Olympic sport has ever seen. It was published by HQ and shortlisted for the Telegraph Sports Book Awards.
