Ed Coode, one of Britain's finest rowers, first picked up an oar at Eton because he was useless at ball games. He rowed for his school and scraped into the junior British team in his final year, but had little idea that he would be chosen for the coxless fours in Britain's Olympic rowing squad just half a decade later. Coode, son of a solicitor and born in Cornwall in 1975, packed in rowing after leaving school.
