    Women's single sculler Emma Twigg is off to her fifth Olympic Games - the first New Zealand rower to do so

    Women's single sculler Emma Twigg is off to her fifth Olympic Games - the first New Zealand rower to do so


    The 37-year-old Tokyo gold medallist headlines an 18-strong rowing team named for next month's Games in Paris.

    Twigg jokes that her tenure as an Olympian has transcended buildings, referring to the Sir Don Rowlands Centre near Lake Karapiro.



    Robbie Manson and Jordan Parry will team up in the men's double sculls, with Tom Mackintosh the lone male in the single sculls.
