Scown named World Rowing athlete of the month
Two time-Olympic medallist Rebecca Scown has been named the World Rowing athlete of the month.
Rebecca Scown has a lot of medals to her name. She’s most recently taken silver at the Rio Olympics in the coxless pair – a class that she’s been the world champion in twice. She’s also won World Rowing Championship bronze three times in the pair and Olympic bronze in London. Not content to stay in a little boat, she was part of New Zealand’s silver-medal winning eight at the 2015 World Rowing Championships, a boat that she doubled up in and placed fourth in Rio. Scown is currently the only returning Olympic medallist on the New Zealand team.
