Kiwis in action today

New Zealand’s first chance for a medal today comes from the women’s pair, where Brooke Donoghue and Hannah Osborne row in the final. They are expected for the silver behind the Romanian duo and have a significant chance of joining the Evers-Swindell twins as the only Kiwi women to win a medal in this event.

However, with the women’s doubles taking precedence, the seven-man All Blacks are set to make history, looking for New Zealand’s first men’s medal in the format after being knocked out in the quarterfinals in 2016.

That hurdle was safely negotiated with a comfortable 21-10 win over Canada last night, and now they are big favorites to beat Great Britain in the semifinals, who came back from a 21-0 deficit. to beat the United States and reserve a spot against the Kiwis.

Fiji face Argentina in the other semi-final, and while the odds point to a New Zealand final against Fiji, the performances produced by Great Britain and Argentina in their quarter-final triumphs mean that nothing is certain.

New Zealand’s other medal hope today comes from the men’s road time trial, where Patrick Bevin hopes to defeat Filippo Ganna, Rohan Dennis and Wout van Aert to step onto the stage.

Bevin was only three seconds short of a podium at the 2019 world championships, but he will likely have to produce an equally superb performance and hope that some of his rivals have a day off or suffer some misfortune in order to create a surprise. memorable medal.

Natalie Rooney produced a memorable surprise medal in 2016, and she begins her campaign for a second to add to the collection in the trap shooting qualification today, while the Sail 470 and Nacra-17 crews are hoping for the start of their campaign. is more successful than the rest of the Kiwi contingent, which struggled to get started in Tokyo.
