There is no intention to travel overseas to contest events due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Instead, crews selected will remain in New Zealand for training and competition before Olympic team selection in June.
An elite trial took place this week and another trial will be held next month, after which the men’s elite team will be named.
Rowing NZ will also announce a men’s quad and eight crew to contest the final Olympic qualifying regatta in Lucerne, Switzerland in May.
World Rowing is expected to announce whether that regatta will go ahead in the next couple of weeks. It was shut down last year because of the pandemic.
The New Zealand Olympic rowing team will be announced on June 9.
