The New Zealand men’s eight have successfully qualified for the Tokyo Olympic Games.

The team won their final at the last Olympic qualification regatta in Switzerland.

Before the race the New Zealand crew needed to finish in the top two to gain an automatic position. In the end, New Zealand won the race by 1.2 seconds in front of Romania. China finished third.

The men’s eight crew will return to New Zealand this week where they continue training throughout a 14 day period based in a managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ) facility.
