Well, rowing is actually a pretty big sport in NZ. There's various world and Olympic champions here. It's generally pretty much an elitist sport though, with the majority of the top competitors coming from the exclusive private schools. It all just seems a bit... wanky to me.

Sport is elitist, it requires time and money to get anywhere and that favours the privileged.
So is all sport "A bit wanky" to you?

No. Sport's not like that here. The whole country must be privileged. There are some sports which attract mass participation, like rugby in all it's various forms (I know it's elitist in the UK thought), like sevens and touch, and the several different forms put together for kids.

Rowing is becoming less elitist, because some of the poorer state schools are now managing to get boats and loans of equipment from the private schools, but it still has a stuck up air to it. The top people in it don't come across that way though, like Rob Waddell (met him, very down to earth, Olympic gold medalist, ended up as a grinder in the America's Cup, played rugby for Waikato, is now NZ's Olympic Chef de mission), Hamish Bond and Eric Murray (Olympic and world champions, undefeated in about the past five years), Mahe Drysdale (world champ, Olympic medalist). But it's still got an image problem at the lower levels.

And I see Cambridge won for the first time in four years.

I sees.

One thought Oxford men gave a plucky show of it.
At least Oxford women won. <:)
