Caroline & Georgina to retire

Caroline and Georgina Evers-Swindell announced they are retiring from rowing.

They won their second Olympic gold in Beijing and plan to take some time out while they decide their futures off the water.

“Retiring now just feels right,” Caroline said.

“It’s been a great time in our lives and we couldn’t have done it without (coach) Richard (Tonks).”

“We have always said they should give out three medals not two.”

Georgina said there was life in New Zealand rowing after them.
