Has Penzance's Helen Glover started another golden summer of sport?

She was the first to win gold at last year's Olympics.

On Sunday the Pirate FM Local Hero Award Winner took another at the World Rowing Cup, at the scene of her 2012 triumph - Eton Dorney.

She and new partner, Polly Swann, won the women's pair.

It comes as Andy Murray prepares to launch his Wimbledon campaign against Benjamin Becker later.

Helen said: "It's the first time I've been here since the Olympic games. I stepped out of the bus and thought, 'Right, let's not get too nostalgic about this.' Then I was walking around thinking - that's where I met my parents, that's where I hugged my coach. All these little things come back to you.

"By day two I was like, 'OK, we're here for the world cup.' This is a different race but it will always be a special venue.

"It's just so good for the country - rowers from all over the world want to come to Britain to race, because you get support like this, they get venues like this.

"We can show off how well we can do events like this. The crowds are amazing - there's just cheering all the way down the course

"It makes everything we do - the early mornings, the long rows - it makes them all worth it."
