At the Barcelona Olympics in 1992, the Australian Mens Double Scull acheived the first Olympic victory for Sykes Racing. Using the Double Scull Mould 13, they powered themselves to Olympic Gold.
Then, at the Atlanta Games in 1996, both the Australian and American Crews rowed Sykes pairs to medals - Gold and Silver respectively. Once again Gold for the Sykes Mould 13.
Most recently, at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, the Australian Heavyweight Mens Coxless pair used our Mould 23 to acheive the ultimate Olympic glory
While the success of our pair / double moulds has more to do with the crews that won in them, these crews have appreciated the fast hull shapes, incredible stability and exceptional quality of their Sykes equipment and thus they have returned to these moulds time and time again to maintain the winning edge.
Since the introduction of Womens Lightweight Double Sculls to the Olympics, Sykes Racing has designed the World's first and foremost double scull specifically for Women. Already used by Australian, American, Canadian and New Zealand crews and used to win the 2002 World Championship this unique hull shape is sure to be regarded as very special for many years to come.
