Sunday 2nd October – Marlow played host to a superb Olympic and Paralympic Homecoming event celebrating the achievements of athletes from the local area.

The 7 athletes were

  • Jeanette Chippington – Paralympic canoeing
  • Katie-George Dunlevy –  Paralympic cycling
  • Helen Glover – Olympic rowing
  • Katherine Grainger – Olympic rowing
  • Clare Griffiths – wheelchair basketball
  • Amber Hill: Skeet shooting
  • Naomi Riches: 2012 Paralympic rowing, and Gold postbox 🙂

A bit more info on each athlete can be found in our original article previewing the event.

(Marlow’s Alex Danson was unable to attend, but we recently met Alex for an interview, which you can read here.)

Thanks would be in order to

  • Wycombe District Council – who orgainsed the whole thing
  • Tim Ashburner of Marlow FM, doing a great job of interviewing the athletes
  • Marlow Rowing Club and Marlow Hockey Club – for their guard of honour
  • Anyone else who was involved in any way!
