    Mixed fortunes for the New Zealand eights at the rowing World Championships in Austria

    Mixed fortunes for the New Zealand eights at the rowing World Championships in Austria


    The women's eight has claimed gold, winning by nearly three seconds in the medal race from Australia in a massive statement a year out from the Tokyo Olympics.

    The men's eight however has missed out on qualification for the Games, finishing sixth and last in the final.

    Women's eights world champion Ella Greenslade says her crew stayed in tune in the medal race.



    The women's double of Olivia Loe and Brooke Donoghue claimed gold, while Emma Twigg won silver in the women's single.
