Stories from the Locker Room podcast: Mahe Drysdale

Mahe Drysdale is arguably one of New Zealand's greatest-ever Olympians.

The two-time defending singles sculls champion is 41-years-old, but age is just a number as the rowing icon has his eyes set on more gold in Tokyo in 2021. 

His career hasn't been without its downs, which includes the bronze medal row in 2008 and a near-career ending injury in 2005.

From the lows of Beijng to the incredible highs of London and Rio, the Australian-born Kiwi has seen it all.

In this episode of Stories from the Locker Room, Drysdale reveals to Newshub's Grant Chapman,  the inspiration behind his stellar career, his drive towards a third successive Olympic singles sculls gold and what could curtail his career swansong.
