Nationality of Heather Stanning[edit]

As Helen was born in England and only moved to Scotland aged 10, how did she become Scottish? I am English and moved to Scotland when I was 34 that was some 32 years ago and the last time i looked at my birth certificate it still read born in England.213.1.33.111 (talk) 18:20, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

Well the article now just describes her as a "British" rower. ACEOREVIVED (talk) 23:24, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

In fact, looking at the history of the article, it appears that it was only a brief portion of August 1 2012 that she was described as "Scottish" - that may well have been vandalism. ACEOREVIVED (talk) 23:29, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

Rowing is competed for at British level, so I would say that the article should read 'Heather Mary Stanning (born 26 January 1985) is a British rower'. If no-one disagrees on this talk page I will change it in due course. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Iainturnerisgod (talkcontribs) 18:54, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

About her army work[edit]

This article makes it clear that she is in the army. I believe that as part of her army work, she has served in Afghanistan. Does any one think that this is informative enough about her to go in the article? I am well aware that she is currently better known for her success at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Why not? Background, personal life, career etc. as long as they don't stray into the trivial and are referenced only add to the article?--Egghead06 (talk) 11:02, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
As long as it's cited of course and not speculation or original research. Miyagawa (talk) 17:10, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
