Steve Trapmore reflects on the National Lottery as it celebrates its 26th anniversary

GB Rowing Team coach Steve Trapmore talks to Martin Cross about the impact of the National Lottery funding on rowing and how it helped his own career

“I’ve been buying lottery tickets ever since they started supporting rowing. Maybe I can win some money. But more than that it’s what buying the ticket represents in many, many walks of life at all different levels,” says Trapmore.

As it celebrates its 26th anniversary, the National Lottery could have no finer ambassador than GB Rowing Team coach Steve Trapmore. And the Sydney Olympic champion took time out from his busy schedule to explain just how important the lottery has been to his own rowing career since he started out at Walton Rowing Club back in the early nineties.
