The 2008 Olympic game Drysdale was officially selected as New Zealands Olympic heavyweight sculler on 7 March 2008. He was for Drysdale, a severe gastrointestinal infection in the week before his final saw him off form and he was only able to carry the bronze medal for the mens single scull. The gold and silver medals went to Olaf Tufted from Norway and Ondřej Synek from the Czech Republic, respectively. Clearly suffering from his illness, after his race, Drysdale was carried by life raft and then moved to a waiting ambulance. He was also seen vomiting. He was, however, able to stand to be awarded his medallion. At the 2012 Summer Olympics Drysdale comfortably won the gold medal in the mens single sculls, despite throwing up the morning of race day due to nervousness. He has since said he may not compete at the next rowing world championships but will attempt to participate in the 2016 Summer Olympics, and in the meantime may take on new challenges such as ironman and New Zealands annual Coast To Coast multisport event
