Today, weather permitting, is the 3rd of a best of 3 series to determine the New Zealand Olympic rowing singles entrant.
New Zealand, who cares?
Well, the competitors are Mahe Drysdale, 3 time world champion, and Rob Waddell, two time world, 2000 Olympic champion and still the 19-29 Men’s world record holder at 2000 meters on the erg.
Everybody in the world rowing community will be interested. As for the rest of you….unless you join in on the fun you will be missing out on great athletes performing at the top level of one of the world’s most demanding sports.
Here is a news clip from after yesterday’s second race.
And, here is where to catch today’s race live at a to be determined time (there are weather issues) or streaming later.
BTW, time in New Zealand currently appears to be about 3 hours behind US PST.
Update 3/3: The race has been rescheduled to 3/5 at 9:00 AM (I believe Noon PST)
