Dick Tonks, the coach of double Olympic rowing champions Caroline and Georgina Evers Swindell admits it won't be quite the same heading out onto Laka Karapiro without the twins.

The double scull gold medallists from the the Athens and Beijing Olympics announced their retirement from competitive rowing yesterday a move which Tonks admits surprised him.

He says the twins hallmark was their attitude to training.
