Double Olympic medallist Shirley Robertson pregnant with twins

Double Olympic gold medal winning yachtswoman, Shirley Robertson today named her crew for the China Olympics and the fact she is due to give birth in July – to twins.

Annie Lush and Lucy Macgregor join Team Shirley Robertson to campaign for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, with Volvo as their principal sponsor and the Isle of Wight Economic Partnership and BT as supporting partners. The three girls are part of Skandia Team GBR. They are also all individually supported by UK Sport.

Together with her crew, Shirley will be going for a third gold in Beijing, which would make her the greatest British female Olympian of all time. Annie Lush, 26, from Poole is currently ISAF Woman’s Match World Champion and is also two times winner of the Rolex Cup International Woman’s Keelboat Championships. Lucy Macgregor, 19 also from Poole, is a product of the RYA youth squad, competing in Mirrors, 420s and 470s internationally.
