When Kelowna's Will Dean gets set to row in the London Olympics, his mom will be able to relate to what he's going through.
Jo-Anne Ritchie is an elite athlete herself, having held the 1991 women's triathlon world championship and the 1993 world Cup in triathlon.
This summer, her son, Will, will compete for Team Canada in the men's rowing fours event.
Jo-Anne will travel to London to watch but before leaving she stopped in to our CBC studio in Kelowna to speak with Daybreak host, Chris Walker.
