Gold for NZ pairs at World Cup regatta
Mon, 18 Jun 2012 4:31a.m.
The New Zealand lightweight women’s double scull pairing of Louis Ayling and Julia Edward have produced a gold medal at the Munich World Cup regatta.
Ayling and Edward were pushed all the way in their scull, as a strong Denmark team had closed the margin by the 1500m mark.
But the Kiwi double mustered up enough energy to ease out a victory in 7m 22.88s, a second and a-half in front of the Danes.
Eric Murray and Hamish Bond were the other New Zealand pair to claim gold and continue their unbeaten run in international rowing to 15 straight, major regattas.
It took the Kiwis their first 500m to find their rhythm, until they upped their workrate and left the field behind. The fast-finishing Australians hauled in the French for second, but were still nearly five second behind the New Zealanders.
