Just watched this again. Like Nathan, I had a video cassette version in the 1990's and was hugely influential. Superb effort NZONSCREEN. Thank you.

Makes you realize that no matter how much you train, nor how well you have done in the years and months leading up to the Olympics, winning gold, especially in rowing, is anything but guaranteed. It is so damn tough...and to repeat as champion 4 years on...even tougher.

Lost count of how many times I've watched this video. In club and university crews we used to share round an old VHS tape that had off cuts as well. Great to see it back up and saved somewhere for prosperity

I was so thrilled to find my father 'Doc' McDonald in the ergometer testing. Many many times, he dragged us (me my brother and my sister) done to the riverside or the sports medicine clinic to 'watch' the tests. My father is now 79 years old and continues coaching top-level New Zealand rowers. I am so proud of him!!!
