Diane Modahl Launches 2009 Two Cities Boat Race
Former Olympic athlete Diane Modahl visited Salford Quays this week to officially launch the 2009 Two Cities Boat Race, which takes place on Sunday 10th May.

Rowers from the Universities of Manchester and Salford joined Diane on the quayside on Wednesday (11th March) to discuss the art of rowing and share sporting knowledge before launching their boats onto the water to mark this year's rowing event.

Speaking at the launch, Manchester born Diane said: "It's wonderful to spend time with such committed young athletes. The students are really determined and dedicated to their sport, so it's definitely going to be a nail biting event this year. I'll be there cheering them on!"

All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
