Nathan Cohen

Nathan CohenSport: Rowing

Nation: New Zealand

DOB: January 2, 1986

Hometown: Invercargill

Career Highlights: Cohen is due to make his second Olympic appearance after finishing fourth (6:30.79) in double sculls at the Beijing Games with Rob Waddell. But unlike in 2008, when Cohen and Waddell were paired up only after Waddell was edged out by Mahe Drysdale in singles, Cohen has been teamed with Joseph Sullivan for quite some time. The two have won the last two double sculls at the world championships after most recently edging out the German team by six-hundredths of a second. Prior to Cohen and Sullivan’s victory at Lake Karapiro in 2010, no New Zealand duo had won gold in double sculls at a world championship. The 26-year-old Cohen said he never would have imagined winning back-to-back world titles, but he also knows that those results mean nothing when the boats set up at the starting line this summer at Eton Dorney.
