Bond and Murray win gold

Stuff reports:

Peerless men’s pair Hamish Bond and Eric Murray have claimed back-to-back Olympic gold medals at the Rio Games.

The Kiwi pair, now undefeated in 69 consecutive races, pulled away over the second half of the course to claim New Zealand’s first rowing medal at Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon on Thursday (Friday NZ Time) and the country’s first gold medal in Rio.

Winning 69 races in a row. Wow. Very deserving of the gold medal. Last defeated in 2009.
