Inside Rowing: The Magic of the Eight

  • 18 Apr 16

Like a human powered rocket ship, the Eight is the fastest boat on the water and one of New Zealand’s favourites.

In our third episode of Inside Rowing with Mighty River Power, Nathan Twaddle talks to some of New Zealand’s greats to find out what makes the Eight so special and why there’s a resurgence underway in New Zealand.

Featuring Mike Stanley (World Champion 1982/83), 1972 Gold Medallists Tony Hurt, Gary Robertson and Wybo Weldman and current New Zealand Women’s Eight Coach Dave Thompson.
