from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Keith Charles Trask (born November 27, 1960 in Hastings ) is a former New Zealand rower who was once a world champion and an Olympic champion.

Trask had not been able to take part in the 1980 Olympic Games because of the Olympic boycott . At the World Rowing Championships in Duisburg in 1983 , the New Zealand four-man with helmsman in the line-up of Leslie O'Connell , Keith Trask, Gregory Johnston , Conrad Robertson and helmsman Brett Hollister won the title in front of the boats from the GDR and the USSR. At the 1984 Olympic Games , O'Connell, Robertson and Trask competed with Shane O'Brien as a four-man without a helmsman . In the absence of the boats from the Eastern Bloc, the New Zealanders won ahead of the US boat and the Danes. At the 1985 World Rowing Championships in Belgium, Ross Tong was in the four for Robertson, who finished fourth behind the boats from the FRG, the USSR and the GDR.

The 1.90 m tall Trask rowed for the North Shore Rowing Club in Auckland .
