Newcastle rower Jake Bratley has Olympic aspiration

A teenage rower from Tyneside, undefeated in regional competitions, has high hopes to win an Olympic medal one day.

Jake Bratley, 15, is a member of Tyne Rowing Club in Newcastle and began rowing two-and-a-half years ago.

The teenager has not been beaten in the region and won gold in the J14 single sculls at the British Rowing Championships in July.

BBC Look North's Stephanie Cleasby joined him for a training session.
