Australia dominate world rowing cup

Australia have topped the medal count and points table at a World Rowing Cup event for the first time since 2014.

Australia have finished top of the medal tally and points table at the World Rowing Cup event in Poland.

The team claimed a total of four gold, three silver and four bronze medals as Australia capped off the event by claiming medal honours for the first time in Europe.

It was also the first time Australia finished head of the points table in Europe since 2006, coincidentally also in Poznan.

The last time Australia topped both the World Rowing Cup medal and points table was five years ago in Sydney.

The women's eight, men's four and men's pair capped off a wonderful meet for the Australians with gold medals on Sunday.

Silver was secured in the men's single scull, women's pairs and men's quadruple scull.

The women's four, women's double scull and lightweight men's double scull added bronze to Australia's haul, as 12 finals on a busy final day rounded out the competition.
