Kiwi rowers have won four gold medals at the third World Cup Rowing regatta in Poland as they continue to build to the Paris Olympics.

The gold medals came from single sculler Tom Mackintosh, lightweight women's double scullers Shannon Cox and Jackie Kiddle, plus the men's and women's four all won their finals.

The men's double and one of the men's pair finished with bronze.

The men's pair of Phillip Wilson and Daniel Williamson beat the other New Zealand crew of Campbell Crouch and Ben Taylor in what is potentially a trial as the men's pair nomination, which has yet to be announced for the Olympics.

Mackintosh, who won bronze at last year's world championships, took the lead at the halfway point and stayed clear of Olympic bronze medalist Damir Martin of Croatia and Sverri Nielsen of Denmark.

The lightweight double of Cox and Kiddle eased to victory, almost five seconds ahead of France.

The fours went back-to-back with the women, Phoebe Spoors, Kerri Williams, Davina Waddy and Jackie Gower, storming out from the start and controlling the rest of the race to finish well clear of Australia.

Williams, who won gold in Tokyo in the pair and silver in the eight, was back after taking a year off and said the win for the four was much needed.

The men's crew of, Olliver Maclean, Logan Ullrich, Tom Murray and Matt Macdonald, took the lead from Australia at the half way stage and finished three second ahead.

Macdonald, who was a part of the gold medal winning eight in Tokyo, said while he may appear to be the experienced member of the four, they were all learning a lot as a crew.

The New Zealand rowers now head to a training camp ahead of the Olympics and will joined by those members of the squad who have been training in New Zealand.
