Manson Topples Drysdale’s Best Time Record

Manson Topples Drysdale’s Best Time Record

There is a tough competition brewing up in the New Zealand single sculls spot between the new record holder Manson and current single sculler Drysdale.


The two-time Olympian MaheDrysdale’s record was broken by Robbie Manson during his gold winning performance for New Zealand at the World Cup regatta in Poland last weekend.

The amazing thing about Robbie’s sculling was that he was able to better to best time word record set by Drysdale and that too by three seconds. Because of this achievement, there is going to be healthy competition among these two popular single scullers for the number one position for the New Zealand team. This is a really good sign for the New Zealand team looking forward to the forthcoming Tokyo Olympics in 2020.

The high-performance director of Rowing New Zealand, Allan Cotter, feels that this achievement by Robbie Manson has set a new bar for Drysdale to conquer. Drysdale is all set to get back to training after a layoff following his gold-winning performance at Rio Olympics.
