During the Beijing Olympics Andy led Britain's coxless four to a last-gasp victory. As the 2,000 metre race entered its final stages the Australian crew were ahead and looked certain to win. However, led by strokeman Andy, the Great British crew of Peter Reed, Tom James and Steve Williams were driven to reach the finish line four seconds ahead of their rivals.

"There's no doubt that Andy is a champion – charismatic, determined and focused on success. That's just how we want our people to be as they develop their careers with us," says Careline's CEO, Charles Cooper-Driver.
