Pieces of Eight

This documentary on the New Zealand men's 8 leading up to the 1984 olympics is truly mesmerizing. Check out their version of the erg (or the machine they use to gauge the body's ability to do work) around the 5:40 mark.

  1. What a cool find! By the way...Just checked the results for the '84 games. Unfortunately, New Zealand did not medal in the 8s. But they did win silver in the Men's 4 and bronze in the Men's 4+.
