2012 and 2016 Olympic single sculls gold medal winner.


Mahe is an inspirational athlete - winning back to back World Championship titles, and representing performance and endurance at its best.

Previous experience
Olympic Athlete
Single sculler Mahe Drysdale once again triumphed at the Olympics in Rio 2016 - taking out gold in the closest rowing final in Olympic history, and leading to his 5th Halberg Award for Best Sportsman of the Year!

In 2012 Mahe was the Olympic flag bearer for New Zealand and won gold in the men's single sculls at Eaton Dorney at the end of the first week of the London Olympics. Mahe also was awarded two silver medals for the men’s single scull and the men's lightweight four at the 2014 World Rowing Championships in Amsterdam.

His epic battle with Olympic Champion Rob Waddell won him the hearts of many New Zealander's for his courage and humility.

He so clearly displays the genuine traits of working hard to be the best and dealing honestly with what is dealt to you.

Mahe offers a sense of confidence and stature that resonates with all manner of audience. He is a timeless athlete who embodies all the traditional qualities of patriotism.

Mahe is a great addition to any conference or event, with inspirational messages from his sporting success.

Hard to think how it could have been better! STIHL

"Mahe was quite simply superb, he spoke perfectly about his life and execution of his dream, he fitted his presentation exactly into our conference theme and referenced the theme on a number of occasions. We would highly recommend him to others and we will always remember this event at Hilti. On behalf of Hilti we thanked him sincerely for sharing his experiences, and spending time with us."
