11:55 am on 15 August 2012

New Zealand crews will take inspiration from a successful Olympic Games when they take part in the World Junior Rowing Championships which starts in Bulgaria tonight.

New Zealand has a women's coxless four, a women's and men's quad, a men's coxed four.

The regatta of a thousand athletes from 57 countries will include the seven senior classes that weren't involved in the Olympics.

That includes a New Zealand women's lightweight single sculler and a senior men's lightweight pair.
