Drysdale's Olympic lead up dented on bike
Fri, 15 Jun 2012 7:47a.m.
Five-time world champion sculler Mahe Drysdale says he will still be fine to compete at the London Olympics, despite hurting his shoulder in a cycling accident in Germany.
Drysdale, 33, was knocked off his bicycle by a car at a roundabout while training this week and will miss a rowing event in Munich at the weekend.
However, he told Radio New Zealand while it was a "semi-serious injury" it would only keep him out of the boat for a maximum of 10 days.
He would be fine for the London Olympics, which start on July 27, he said.
Drysdale had been in good form leading up to this week, and had beaten long-time rival Ondrej Synek at the Holland Beker regatta in Amsterdam.
