The 2017 Rowing New Zealand Elite team to compete at the 2017 World Rowing Championships was named at an announcement at Lake Karapiro today.

13 boat classes have been selected, including 12 Olympic boat classes. The announcement sees the addition of a men's and women's coxless four, which has recently been added to the Olympic programme.

The announcement sees some new faces join the elite squad. Six athletes who have recently competed at under 23 level will now also be racing at the World Rowing Championships in Florida. Charlie Rogerson and Phillip Wilson have made the step up from the under 23 men's eight to the men's coxless four and reserve men's pair respectively. Ellie Jeurissen and Beth Ross (women's under 23 four) will join Kirstyn Goodger and Jackie Gowler in the women's coxless four, while their remaining team mates from the under 23 four - Ella Greenslade and Charlotte Spence make up the reserve women's pair.

Crews will remain at Lake Karapiro to train before departing for Florida on the 14th September 2017. The team will contest the 2017 World Rowing Championships in Sarasota, Florida.
