Two Time Kiwi Rowing Olympian Considers Switching to Fiji

A two time rowing olympian and a Kiwi, Mahe Drysdale is contemplating to switch to Fiji in a bid to get to the Tokyo Olympics.

After missing to compete for World Champs in Austria, rowing Olympian is considering to talk to Fijian Rowing Federation for a spot in team Fiji.

Mahe Drysdale getting a spot will be a big win for Fiji and the Federation.

“There’s nothing stopping me going and joining a club in Fiji and getting the Fijian Rowing Federation to okay my entry for the world cups… that’s just the way the world cups work. They are open to any athlete that’s a member for a club in that country.

“It’s certainly something that I don’t want to do but is something that I’d have to look at if it all turns to custard.”

Drysdale lost in two recent races in New Zealand which made his dream to World Champs come short.
