The Olympic rowing competition seems to be one of those events that the US does not do that great. It surprises me with all of the great crew teams in our colleges.
On Wednesday there are three medal rounds, Men's Eight, Women's Pair and Women's Quadruple Scull. The United States has only one scull in these three medal rounds. It is in the Women's Quadruple Scull.
The Men's Lightweight Four has advanced to the semi-finals that is taking place today. This scull has Anthony Fahden in the bow from Dartmouth College, William Newell in seat 2 from Harvard, Nicholas la Cava in seat 3 from Columbia University and Robin Prendes in the stroke from Princeton. Good luck guys.
The Men's Pair semifinals will be on Wednesday and the U.S. has one scull in the hunt. This scull has Thomas Pezak from University of Michigan and Silas Stafford from Stanford/Cambridge.
