A smug rower is heading to a post marked 'Gold'. His scull is labelled 'New Zealand' and tumbling out of it are the other hopefuls of the New Zealand team. Their bodies are made up of the Olympic logo graphics for their respective sports. At the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich New Zealand's rowing eight won gold and the coxless fours won silver. Rod Dixon, who won bronze in the 1500 metres, was the only other New Zealand medal winner at these Games.
