    The enjoyment factor has been a key motivator behind Robbie Manson's surprise boat switch ahead of the Tokyo Olympics

    The enjoyment factor has been a key motivator behind Robbie Manson's surprise boat switch ahead of the Tokyo Olympics


    Manson and Chris Harris have been selected to compete in the double sculls boat for the two World Cups before the Games, with Manson forgoing the opportunity to compete for the single sculls spot.

    Manson struggled to perform during the past three World Championships where he was in the single seat.

    Coach Calvin Ferguson says doing what he loves is important for Manson.
