Ellis & Co would like to say a huge congratulations to Victoria Thornley who was recently selected to represent Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics.

Victoria has been confirmed as a member of the 48 strong rowing squad by the British Olympic Association.

Victoria, from Holt, first started her dream of a place in the Olympics after responding to the 'Sporting Giants' appeal by UK Sport for tall and athletically talented young men and women.  The aim was to develop new talent for one of the so called 'tall sports' of rowing, volleyball and handball in time for the Olympics.  At 6ft 3in, Victoria was told by countless modelling agencies that she was too tall to continue her modelling career.

Ellis & Co are proud to have sponsored Victoria.  This really is a huge achievement given that prior to Sporting Giants, Victoria had never even set foot in a rowing boat! 

Ellis & Co wish Victoria good luck in the 2012 Olympics!
