Rowers return home to relax

ROWERS Cameron McKenzie-McHarg and Drew Ginn have arrived home after a rewarding Olympic Games in London.

Both rowers were part of the big welcome home parade at Federation Square, Melbourne last Wednesday.

Drew was part of the successful men’s four which won silver whilst Cameron’s men’s eight crew missed a medal by a split second.

Cameron was back on home soil of Leongatha over the weekend to catch up with family and friends.

He hasn’t ruled out a tilt in Rio De Janeero  in four years time but he hasn’t given it a great deal of thought just yet.

Although disappointed on missing a medal Cameron said it was great making the final.

“We were certainly in the mix for a medal but just missed bronze. The Germans won the gold and the defending champions Canada won the silver with Great Britain third,” Cameron said.

“The games were just great, the atmosphere was enormous. In our final we couldn’t hear the instructions from our cox with 500 metres to go such was the noise.”

“Ït was exciting being part of such a successful Olympics and the venue of London was just magnificent.”

Cameron told The Star that physically he could go on and have another go in four years and at 32 he was still a distinct possibility.

He said that the commitment was huge for both him and his family and he would soon give it some thought.

Meanwhile he returns to Melbourne this week to prepare for his return to work this Monday.
