Youngest Kiwi crew races at World Rowing Championships
In the third day of racing at the World Rowing Championships, one New Zealand crew raced amid tail wind conditions.
Men’s Four (M4-) – Repechage
The New Zealand Men’s Four is a newly formed crew of Thomas Russel, Tom Mackintosh, Matt MacDonald and Angus McFarlane. McFarlane placed second in the Men’s Coxed Four at the recent World Rowing U23 Championships, while Russel, Mackintosh and MacDonald placed third in the Men’s Four. Needing a first of second placing to secure a lane in the A/B semi-final, New Zealand presented an incredibly impressive sprint in the last 500 but Belarus and Ukraine crossed the line first and second respectively. The New Zealand crew move to the event’s C/D semi-final on Thursday afternoon local time.
