SAHOF Members James Tomkins OAM and Drew Ginn OAM cemented their names as one of the greatest pairings in international rowing history when they won gold in the Coxless Pairs event at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games.
The medal was the second Olympic gold for Ginn and the third for Tomkins and in 2003 the pair were recognised as the FISA Male Crew of the Year after their stunning win in the World Championships in Milan. The win in Athens meant Tomkins became Australia’s most successful rower, with three Olympic and nine World Championship gold medals.
