NZ rowers have solid hit-out
Mon, 18 Jun 2012 4:03p.m.
New Zealand's rowing team have had a solid pre-Olympic hit-out in the final World Cup regatta in Munich, coming away with three gold and three silver medals.
Two of the golds went to the two lightweight double sculls crews of Julia Edward and Louise Ayling in the women's event and Peter Taylor and Storm Uru in the men's.
The third went to three-time world champions and Olympic favourites Eric Murray and Hamish Bond in the coxless pair.
In the women's pair, double world champions Juliette Haigh and Rebecca Scown had to settle for being runners-up again after being beaten for the second regatta in a row by the impressive British combination of Helen Glover and Heather Stanning.
The men's double of Nathan Cohen and Joseph Sullivan also picked up silver, as did Emma Twigg in the women's single sculls.
Five-time world champion Mahe Drysdale missed the regatta because of minor injuries from a cycle training accident.
