Final Olympic rowing regatta cancelled

The men's eight and men's quad were scheduled to compete in the final Olympic qualifying regatta in Lucerne, Switzerland in May.

However that has been called off along with the third and final World Cup regatta at the same venue later that same week.

World Rowing says they'll make a statement on Olympic qualification later this week.

If the international body decides to fill up their Olympic spots on rankings then the two New Zealand crews are well placed to get places.
