OLYMPIC and world championship rower Matthew Pinsent visited Marks and Spencer in Sandhurst to celebrate the launch of a new performance-lead sportswear range.

Matthew is one of a series of renowned athletes endorsing View Form, the sportswear range purchased from former Olympian Brendan Foster in June.

The collection includes specifically designed garments for running, golf, gym and fitness and outdoor pursuits. A skiwear range for adults and children will appear this month.

All products in the range use the very latest in fibre technology, including a revolutionary wind and waterproof bonded fleece.

Angela Masella, marketing manager for View Form, said: "With this range we have combined technological innovation and function with style and quality in an accessible environment."
