The picture headlining the Rowing Service's British Rowing Coverage pages is morphed from a photograph by expert rowing photographer Peter Spurrier (© Copyright 1999). It is of Steve Redgrave in full race flow, and has been stretched and rippled before the title was added. This image was first used to headline the Sydney special coverage on the Rowing Service for the 2000 Olympics, but it seemed appropriate to get it out of hibernation for the home worlds at Dorney. Peter Spurrier is in Eton for the World Championships and now runs his own commercial website at
