1908 Richard Arnst (NZL) defeats William Webb (NZL)

Richard Arnst

Richard Arnst

Richard Arnst was born in New Zealand but learned all his sculling in Australia. He has been claimed by both Australia and New Zealand as one of their athletes. He was also an accomplished professional cyclist before turning to sculling.

Perhaps most interesting is Arnst's longevity at the top of his sport. He regained the title after World War I and was in his late thirties when he finally lost the title in between the wars.
