Drysdale not looking for redemption

7:09 am on 21 August 2009

The New Zealand rower Mahe Drysdale says the drama of last year's Beijing Olympics is not weighing on his mind as her prepares to lineup in the World Championships in Poland this weekend.

A gastric complaint wrecked his Olympics last year, the clear favourite finishing third in the single sculls.

In his first major event since then, Drysdale says he's not looking for redemption.... he just wants to go fast and win...

Drysdale is looking for his 4th world title.

New Zealand has 11 crews competing over the next week in Poznan.
