Only two of Australia’s early champion scullers have had their biography published – Ned Trickett, and Henry Searle. They are now joined by Michael Rush, their colleague, rival and mentor. Michael Rush (1844-1922) was an Irish immigrant. In 1863, he settled on the Clarence River in northern New South Wales. Rush soon became Champion Sculler of the district, and then Champion Sculler of Australia. Rush never achieved the World Title, though he competed for it in 1877, drawing to Sydney’s foreshores the largest crowd of spectators Australia had ever seen. This is his story. It is also the story of early Australian sculling events and champions, race venues, boat-building - and some of the villainy that formerly gave the sport of sculling a reputation almost as murky and colourful as boxing and horse-racing. Rush was among the handful of athletes who made sculling respectable and hugely popular.
