Such sad news from America. Angela was always pushing the boundaries of what rowers with a disability could achieve and one of the pioneers within our sport. Thinking of Deb, her family and the USA rowing family. #AngelaMadsen https://t.co/dq1SwT11Zg

I am so sorry to hear about Angela Madsen. She was, and will always be, a legend. And it could have happened to any of us. She was the most accomplished and experienced of ocean rowers. I am sending love and respect into the heavens tonight. I am honoured to have met her. pic.twitter.com/GM1S72HORT
