Kerri Gowler and Grace Prendergast have won Olympic gold for New Zealand.

The New Zealanders crew trailed Canada for the first half of the 2000m race before a strong move in the 3rd quarter saw them take control of the race. In the final 250m Gowler and Prendergast had to hold off a fast finishing ROC crew. In the end they won by 1.26s, in a time of six minutes 50.19s.

After the race Gowler said: “I can’t believe it.I feel like we crossed the line and I just started yelling, ‘have we done it?’. But it’s amazing, I’m so glad we’ve done it.

The result is New Zealand’s first gold medal of the Tokyo Games and forth overall.
