Twin sisters Georgina (left) and Caroline Evers-Swindell, champion rowers, are among a small group of New Zealand athletes to defend an Olympic gold medal, winning in the women’s double sculls at Beijing in 2008. It was the first time in Olympic history that the women’s double scull title had been successfully defended. On their return to New Zealand, their home town of Cambridge hosted a victory parade for the double-medal champions.
