Emma Twigg Wins Olympic Gold

The FMA Family is proud to congratulate alumna Emma Twigg, from New Zealand, for winning the Olympic gold medal in rowing, single sculls, at the Tokyo 2020 Games, this Friday morning.

If that wasn't enough, she also broke the Olympic record in the process. That was amazing!!!

Her story is fantastic. As the NZ Herald reported, "Few have worked harder for an Olympic gold medal than Emma Twigg. Nobody will begrudge her this moment of glory. In her fourth Olympic single sculls final, Twigg got her bow-ball over the line first, capping an incredible regatta and an amazing, at times luckless, career. Twigg, 34, now has sixth, fourth, fourth and this victory, and having given up the sport, she has triumphed over what looked to be a cruel Olympic fate."

Shortly after the race, Emma said: "All these years with so many disappointments, I just can't thank the people I have surrounded myself around enough.

This will take some time to sink in, but I feel like this is fate - here we are in this moment - this is an amazing feeling.

This is a dream come true for me."

Super well done, Emma - nobody deserves it more!
