Cohen, Sullivan: We couldn't give anything more
Fri, 03 Aug 2012 6:42p.m.
Kiwi gold medallists Nathan Cohen and Joseph Sullivan produced an exhilarating final 500m, coming from fifth to finish as Olympic double sculls champions last night.
And the pair say it’s starting to sink in.
“It’s a pretty unreal feeling,” says Cohen. “You know, waking up and having that gold medal beside you is something that words can’t describe.
“It’s a dream come true really.”
Sullivan says the pair always believed they could do it.
“We’ve trained for these scenarios and would have liked to not leave it up to the sprint, but we knew if it came down to the sprint and we were in the mix, we could definitely take it.”
But despite the excitement around it, the boys say the win was tough.
“There was so much going on afterwards… you didn’t realise how tired you were until a couple of hours later – you just fully crash,” says Cohen.
“Obviously we were both spent out there, we couldn’t give anything more.”
