    Two time Olympic champion Mahe Drysdale has confirmed he will commit to the 2021 Tokyo Olympics

    Two time Olympic champion Mahe Drysdale has confirmed he will commit to the 2021 Tokyo Olympics

    The 41-year-old had initially signalled he would end his career at the 2020 event, but he's delayed that by 12 months to account for the Games' postponement.

    Drysdale was in line to race in the men's single scull boat this year, the same boat he has twice won Olympic gold in.
