Kiwa partner of Women's Eight

The Women's Eight team of the Dutch National Rowing Association (KNRB) can also count on Kiwa support on their way to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. George Mentjox, Corporate Communication Director of Kiwa. “We recognize ourselves very much in the ambitions of the Dutch Women's Eight team to be a world-class player. It is about (sporting) quality, ambition, improving yourself, working closely together and achieving the highest attainable. In addition, just like rowers, Kiwa wants to convert resistance (of water) into progress. Another important reason why Kiwa likes to support rowing, is because it is a very socially responsible sport: it does not cause harmful emissions or waste.”

Kiwa has been supporting Dutch rowing for many years; we also sponsored the Men’s Eight Dutch rowing team in the past, who have won gold at the 1996 Olympic Games.

The sponsoring of the Women's Eight team will in any case relate to 2019, but the intention is, from both Kiwa and the KNRB, to continue this in 2020.
