December 12 - Rebecca Romero, the first British woman to win Olympic medals in two sports, has set up her own sports performance business in Chester.
Romero, who won rowing silver in the quadruple sculls at the Athens 2004 Olympics before switching to cycling at the Beijing 2008 Games, where she won gold in the individual pursuit, retired from Olympic competition earlier this year.
But she has recently competed at the Hawaii Ironman event and now aims to pass on her expertise, knowledge, techniques, experiences and practices she has used to other sports enthusiasts.
The Romero Performance Consultancy has launched with Retül bike fitting and training camp services, and will be providing nutrition analysis, physiological testing and coaching services.
In 2013, there are plans for running training weekends for small groups and the provision of performance packages for groups or individuals.
These packages will offer a full consultation including Retül bike fitting, physiological testing to establish training zones, nutritional analysis, general performance guidance and training rides into the nearby North Wales hills with Romero.
