Emma Twigg. Back In Black.

Row360 talks to the former world champion Kiwi single sculler who, after retiring due to a disappointing fourth place finish in Rio, is now back in the boat and feeling better than ever

So, what have you been up to in the last two and a half years since Rio?

After Rio I headed to Switzerland and worked at the International Olympic Committee for a year. I had an internship there and was part of their planning and coordination team. That was awesome. Following that I was contemplating a return to rowing. At the same time two of my Kiwi friends – who also worked at the IOC – were chatting about riding back to New Zealand by bicycle. I was pretty torn about what to do. In the end I went on the cycling trip with Becks Wardell and Sarah Van Ballekom for a couple of months. Then I flew back to New Zealand and got back into a boat to try to get fit enough to join the team again. That’s been the last couple of years leading up to rejoining the New Zealand rowing squad in October 2018.
