Bound for Beantown

"People ask why we train as hard as we do and sacrifice all that we do given uncertainty that underlies our lives as elite, non-professional athletes. Rowing does not bring big endorsement deals. You’ll never see our faces on Wheaties boxes. I do this because there is no greater honor — none, not one — as a civilian than to represent your country in the Olympics."
This. I would give anything to cox in the Olympics. Anything.
