Tokyo, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 30th Jul, 2021 ) :British great Steve Redgrave says China can become the world's strongest rowing nation after guiding them to joint sixth in the medals table at the Olympic regatta.
But Redgrave, 59, said on Friday China had a bright future in the sport.
"I was brought in to get them there. We're sixth in the table so we've still got a long way to go." The British rower said the winning performance in the women's quadruple sculls was "unbelievable" but the bronze in the blue-riband women's eight would play a big role in inspiring people to take up the sport.
"That boosts their confidence so our team should go on from strength to strength," he said.
"I'll have to see," he said when asked about his future. "My contract is through to the Paris Olympics so I have to assess if my bosses still want me, if I have a future and we'll have to see from there."
