Philippa Baker-Hogan

A few weeks ago we searched some information about Philippa Baker-Hogan because she was going to present the gold medals at the Carlton School Olympics, here are some of the facts we found out. She had a walkway named after her in Wanganui, she is now a member of the Wanganui District Council, she has won 47 rowing world titles and was the first female rower in NZ to get a world title, she used to be a rower in the Olympics and just missed a bronze coming 4th. She has won quite a few medals in women's lightweight singles and women's double sculls.
