Calling Home: Tony Brook from leafy West London

Former Olympic rower Tony Brook was a member of the gold medal-winning eight-seater team at the 1982 World Rowing Championships in Switzerland – with the team beating sporting powerhouses East Germany and the Soviet Union to the line. 

In 1995 that victorious team was recognised by the New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame.  

Tony calls home from Kingston upon Thames in London, just a stone’s throw from Hampton Court Palace and Richmond Park, to talk about his career and life overseas.
