Mahe Drysdale

Mahe Drysdale is the current Olympic world champion, as well as being five-time world champion, in single scull rowing. Drysdale began competing at the international level in 2002, with New Zealand’s coxless four team.

After his crew earned fifth place at the 2004 Olympics, Drysdale decided to switch to the single scull; a year later he won the World Championships, holding his championship title every year until 2009. His major 2016 Summer Olympics win was decided by a photo finish, with Drysdale beating Croatia’s Damir Martin by half a bow ball.
