Description

A gritty story of commitment, self-discovery and the outer limits of human endurance. Hamish Bond and Eric Murray's domination of world rowing is legendary. Double Olympic champions, world record holders and the winners of six World Championship titles in the coxless pair, they have been at the pinnacle of their sport since they captured their first title together in 2009. The Kiwi Pair shares the story of Bond and Murray's unique partnership. Some would describe them as chalk and cheese, two contrasting personalities who nevertheless bring out the best in each other. Join them as they share the secrets to their success, their extreme training regime, the highs and lows of top level sport, and the extraordinary dedication it takes to be world-beating oarsmen. 'This is a story of dedication, and that is a story that is not told often enough.' - Sir Steve Redgrave
