• Name – Kenneth Raynor
• Rowing Club – Peterhouse Boat Club
• When did you start rowing – I joined the school boat club at the end of my form 1 year, 2013
• How far do you want to go – I have no clue at the moment. I’m trying to just live in the moment and focus on this year. I do know that I would like to coach in the future, but my plans are very flexible right now
• Ultimate goal – I would like to do a long distance row, or use rowing to develop under privileged communities
• Favourite song to erg to – ‘Pump it On’ by Toya Delazy
• Best thing about rowing – the early mornings, late nights or lonely rows. These give time to get away from everything; it’s just you and the boat alone with your thoughts and feelings. As one of my mentors, Andrew Peebles said,’ it’s about the collateral beauty.’ Rowing has taught me to find the beauty in everything, the one good moment in a bad day. The life lessons it has taught me are second to none
• Hobbies and interest – I like to work with my hands making things in a workshop. I have always enjoyed the outdoors and would like to spend more time outside. I love the pets we have at home, and don’t think I could ever live without animals. I am passionate about rugby, although I do not play currently, I follow all international and league games closely. I used to sail a lot, but haven’t done so in a while.
• Favourite quote – ‘Be a bottle of water. Not a bottle of soda’
• Idol – Richie McCaw and Steve Redgrave
• Anything else – I’m an introvert until I get to know you. After that I’m a complete idiot. I have been known to have too much ‘joie de vivre’
