Video Review: Inside the Race with Nico Rienks

The Netherlands’ all-time most successful rower is Nico Rienks. Rienks' international rowing career spanned five Olympic Games and during that time he won medals in both sculling and sweep oar events. He has two Olympic gold medals to his name – one in the double (from Seoul) and another in the eight (from Atlanta). He also won Olympic bronze in the double at the Barcelona Games. He and his crewmates in the eight held the World Best Time in this event for five years, from 1999 to 2004.

For World Rowing, Rienks chose to talk through the men’s eight final at the 1994 World Rowing Championships in Indianapolis, USA. Rienks and his crew won silver.
