Peter Antonie ans Steve Hawkins - 1992 Olympic Champions

Peter is one of Australia's greatest rowers with over 19 years in Australian senior A teams from 1977-2000 across lightweight and heavyweight, sculling and sweep and World Championships, Commonwealth Games and Olympic Games. He was the first person to win Interstate Championships in the Eight, Scull and Lightweight Four. He has also made time to coach winning Head of the River crews at his old school Xavier College and also at Carey Grammar. He is a Thomas Keller Medallist, “for an outstanding career in the sport of rowing” - the highest international rowing accolade.

Peter has been quoted as saying that his best race was the double scull at 1992 at Olympic Games, his hardest race the lightweight singles at 1986 Wold Championships, his funniest race the double scull at 1995 at Henley Royal Regatta and his worst, there were too many!
