As Olympic paddling partners Jesse Phillips and Steve Bird make great ballroom dancers.

The sixth-best K2 team at the London Olympics in 2012 are reuniting in next weekend’s Avon Descent and Phillips hopes they can once again perform their swing on the swan and rumba on the river.

“You have to work together, your timing has to be precise, you have to have the ability to dance together and it is a dance and you are dance partners,” he said.
