Scott Brown

Rowing

S Brown
  • 2008

Scott Brown, a six-time adaptive national team member, is one of the most decorated athletes in Paralympic rowing's brief international history. For Brown, who began rowing with the Philadelphia Rowing Program for the Disabled in 1989, the 2008 Paralympic Games may prove to be the final chapter of his career. Although Brown missed out on a medal in Beijing, his vision for the sport he loves will keep him involved in the years to come. 

Brown says he would like to be able to further promote the sport of adaptive rowing through education and he is hoping to see the talent pool grow both in the U.S. and around the world.

Brown is married and works as a human resource specialist for the U.S. Department of Labor. He enjoys camping, sailing, and canoeing in exotic locations.
