Rowing cronies Melissa Wilson and Holly Hill have barely left each other’s side for the last seven years so spending lockdown apart was never an option.
The pair met at Cambridge University Boat Club in 2014, won the Boat Race together in 2017 and both made their senior World Championship bows in 2018.
They ended 2019 at the World Championships in different boats – Wilson in the quad sculls, Hill in the four – but remained inseparable in every other way.
Wilson’s parents live in Guernsey and Edinburgh so she has been staying at Hill’s family home in Gloucestershire for three months, training together under the trellis in the garden.
When trying to recall their last argument, Wilson draws a blank. Surely there’s something they disagree on?
“The main difference is that Holly was the captain of nearly every single sports team at her school, whereas I would write my own sick notes to get off P.E!” said the 27-year-old.
