Point Break

Brook Robertson started rowing at Nelson College for Boys in 2007 at the age of 13. He was predominantly a sculler until a switch to Marlborough Boys’ in 2012, which saw him win the Springbok Shield at Maadi Cup. Brook joined Central RPC at the end of 2012 and this helped him to gain selection for his first New Zealand team in 2013 when he joined a newly formed U23 men’s eight crew that took gold at the World Rowing U23 Championships in Linz, Austria – a first for New Zealand. The crew returned unchanged the following year to win back-to-back golds along with a competitive showing at the elite World Cup 3 in Lucerne. The young men’s eight had Rio in their sights and, after just one crew change, picked up bronze at World Cup 3 in 2015 before taking a close 4th place at the World Championships in Aiguebelette, France. This qualified the boat for the 2016 Olympic Games where the crew finished in 6th place. Brook has been in the elite men’s eight ever since. Highlights include World Cup medals in 2016 and 2017. Off the water Brook is studying a sport and exercise degree with Massey University in preparation for a career in coaching after he retires from international rowing.
