    Rowing New Zealand high performance coach Mike Rodger believes Mahe Drysdale is moving as well as he ever has in the single sculls seat

    Rowing New Zealand high performance coach Mike Rodger believes Mahe Drysdale is moving as well as he ever has in the single sculls seat


    Drysdale - a double Olympic gold medallist - will likely go for a third gold in the boat at the Tokyo Olympics later this year.

    Despite the mileage on Drysdale's 42-year-old body, Rodger says he is technically looking good.



    The New Zealand men's elite team will be named in early March.
