A year and a half later, Emma Twigg would go on to win her first gold medal at the 2021 Tokyo Oympics in the single sculls.
Twigg had retired after the 2016 Rio Olympics after her second consecutive fourth placing in the womans single scull final, but decided to start rowing again in 2018.
She has not yet confirmed if she plans to defend her title at the 2024 Paris Olympics.
