Men’s Single Sculls

This is 33-year-old Yohann Rigogne’s first time rowing for the U.S. team. The Vesper Boat Club single sculler from Besançon, France, began rowing in 1995 and won a French national title in the men’s junior double sculls in 1998. He continued rowing and was a member of the Under 23 French national team in 2000. After moving to the United States in 2005, he coached high school rowing and moved to Philadelphia in 2010 and has been rowing competitively in the single since.

"I started out fast, because they all knew I had been starting fast in the other races," said Rigogne, on winning his single final. "My plan was to start fast and stay ahead. I didn’t think too much about the selection the first 1,500 meters, but once I hit the red buoys and had it in my pocket, I was very happy. I just tried not to die, or catch a crab or anything like that."


Women’s Single Sculls

Returning to the event on the international stage is Cambridge Boat Club’s Gevvie Stone (Newton, Mass.). Stone competed in the event in the 2012 Olympic Games in London, finishing seventh, then left international competition to complete her medical degree at Tufts University School of Medicine.

Only days after her last exam, Stone raced at the 2014 National Selection Regatta 1 and won the event, earning the right to compete at a world cup competition and earn a possible berth on the 2014 U.S. National Team.

Surprised by her success at the selection regatta, Stone said, "I was definitely surprised. Coming into this, I wanted to prove that I could be in the fight in the next two years with Rio in mind."

She completed her quest for a return to the world championships, her first since 2011, by securing her spot on the team with a fifth place finish at World Rowing Cup II.


Lightweight Men’s Single Sculls

Making a return to the senior world championship for the fourth time since 2011 in the lightweight single is Andrew Campbell, Jr. The Cambridge Boat Club sculler won a bronze medal in the event at the combined senior and junior world championships in 2012 and then won the event at the 2013 World Rowing Under 23 Championships.

He finished a personally disappointing seventh at the 2013 world championships, but came back in 2014 to again race in dual world championships. He defended his title at the 2014 World Rowing Under 23 Championships, winning gold, and is now focused on Amsterdam.

"It’s amazing," said Campbell, following his win in Varese, Italy. "I’m so happy to have been able to repeat last year’s performance. It’s hard coming back the next year, because you’re defending. To put that out of mind is difficult, but I think we did a good job handling it and taking this and its own separate piece."


Lightweight Women’s Single Sculls
 

After winning a silver medal in the lightweight women’s double sculls in 2013 with Kristin Hedstrom, Kate Bertko (Oakland, Calif.) and Hedstrom were defeated at the second national selection regatta. Bertko returned to California Rowing Club, and shifted her focus to the lightweight single. Bertko then won the event at trials and was named to the 2014 U.S. National Team.

Men’s Double Sculls


USRowing Training Center – Princeton’s Ian Silveira (West Bloomfield, Mich.) and Alex Karwoski (Hollis, N.H.) were part of the men’s sweep team at the 2013 World Rowing Championships. Silveira won a bronze medal in the eight and Karwoski finished 14th in the men’s pair. After camp boat selections were made, the two began training in small boats, and entered the men’s double event at trials. They advanced to the final through the repechages and won, securing their spot on the 2014 U.S. National Team.

"(Being on the team) feels fantastic," said Silveira, now a seven-time national team athlete. "Selection didn’t go well this year in the eight, and we were on the outside for a while. We put this boat together three weeks ago, and we found speed pretty quickly. We thought we could have a chance, and to make it happen is exciting."


Women’s Double Sculls

Ellen Tomek (Flushing, Mich.) and Meghan O’Leary (Baton Rouge, La.) represented the U.S. in this event last year and finished seventh. The two vowed to stay in the boat class together and spent the off-season at the USRowing Training Center – Oklahoma City, training under coach Jeremy Ivey. 

They won the event at National Selection Regatta 2 and then earned a berth to the 2014 squad with their silver-medal finish at the second world cup. 

"The goal coming into the qualification regatta was top six," said O’Leary, following the second-place finish. "We know that we’re better than that. We wanted to prove something and take home a medal. It’s the deepest doubles field in a long time, so the challenge was tough, and we’re excited to see where we are right now. We just need to keep pushing forward."


Lightweight Men’s Double Sculls

Craftsbury Sculling Center’s Josh Konieczny (Millbury, Ohio) and Cambridge Boat Club’s Austin Meyer (Cohoes, N.Y.) won their event at NSR 2 and went on to race for a spot on the world championships team at the second world cup. They finished fourth in the final to secure a place on the roster.

"This feels good," said Meyer, after making the final in France. "There was a lot of hard work behind this, and it’s good to come here and put the U.S. in the final for the lightweight double. I’m really excited."

Lightweight Women’s Double Sculls

USRowing Training Center – Oklahoma City’s Michelle Sechser (Folsom, Calif.) and Devery Karz (Park City, Utah) won the lightweight women’s double sculls event at the 2014 National Selection Regatta 2 and then raced at World Rowing Cup II, where they finished eighth. Their placement was not enough to earn an automatic berth to the team. But they did not miss their second chance at trials, where they defeated 2012 Olympian Kristin Hedstrom (Concord, Mass.) and Nancy Miles (Bainbridge Island, Wash.) in the two-boat final.

Sechser represented the U.S. in the lightweight single at last year’s world championship, finishing seventh. This is Karz’s first appearance on the senior team.

"This feels pretty amazing," said Karz, after winning the final at trials. "It’s my first time on the senior national team in an Olympic-class boat, and I couldn’t ask for a better stroke seat. It’s awesome. We’re a really new crew. We were lucky to have Jeremy and the training center (in Oklahoma City) to bring us together."


Men’s Pair 

After winning a bronze medal in the four at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Charlie Cole (New Canaan, Conn.) and Glenn Ochal (Philadelphia, Pa.) each took a season off from the national team with plans to return to the squad and race the pair, and they did, going up against two other national team camp athletes London Olympian in the eight Ross James and David Eick at trials.

"It’s a big step in the process," said Ochal. "We have bigger goals, and this was sort of a checkpoint along the way for next year and the year after. Making the team is great, and this is one of those necessary steps. Really, this is just our second race. We raced at NSR and then here. We’ll need what we learned today in Amsterdam." 


Women’s Pair 

Seven-time U.S. national team athlete and two-time Olympian Megan Kalmoe (St. Croix Falls, Wis.) hasn’t competed at a world championships in a sweep boat since winning gold in the four at the 2005 World Rowing Under 23 Championships. But the London bronze medalist teamed up with Kerry Simmonds (San Diego, Calif.), who debuted on the senior team with a gold medal in the eight in 2013, and they were a good match from the start.

The USRowing Training Center – Princeton pair won the event at the first National Selection Regatta and earned the right to compete for a berth on the team as the pair at the second world cup in France, where they finished second to defending Olympic champions from Great Britain, Helen Glover and Heather Stanning. That final included three other U.S. crews. 

"I made a point of giving a shout out on the line to the rest of our team to work as a team," said Kalmoe. "Our teammates push us all year so it was really special to have them here to push us," added Simmonds. "You just kind of feed off that kind of vibe."


Lightweight
Men’s Pair

The U.S. will be represented in this event by trials winners, Michael Wales (Seattle, Wash.) of Cambridge Boat Club and Tyler Nase (Phoenixville, Pa.) of Malta Boat Club. Wales and Nase finished second in the event at the 2013 World Rowing Cup in Lucerne, Switzerland. The U.S. finished eighth in this event at the 2013 World Rowing Championships. 


Men’s Pair with Coxswain

Coxed by Jack Carlson (Weston, Mass.) in his second appearance on the national team, the Penn A.C. Rowing Association’s men’s coxed pair will be powered by Taylor Brown (Winter Park, Fla.) and Henry Hoffstot (Ligonier, Pa.). This is the first world championship for both athletes.


Men’s Quadruple Sculls

The U.S. finished 13th last year in Chungju, South Korea, but look to challenge for a podium spot this year after a strong performance against an experienced field at the final world cup stop in Lucerne. The Craftsbury Sculling Center crew of Benjamin Dann (Pound Ridge, N.J.), John Graves (Cincinnati, Ohio), Stephen Whelpley (Mequon, Wis.) and Peter Graves (Cincinnati, Ohio) won the Senior 1 World Championships trials and then went to Europe to test their speed. After rowing in a semifinal at the Royal Henley Regatta in London, they traveled to Lucerne and took a bronze medal. 

"We were learning with every race, and we still are," said Whelpley, following trials. "Each time we went into a race, we talked about one, or maybe a handful of things, we knew we had to change."


Women’s Quadruple Sculls

This year’s USRowing Training Center – Princeton women’s quad features two athletes new to the senior team including Tracy Eisser (Fair Lawn, N.J.) and Grace Latz (Jackson, Mich.) and two second-year senior team members who are competing in a sculling boat internationally for the first time, Felice Mueller (Cleveland, Ohio) and Olivia Coffey (Watkins Glenn, N.Y.).

While new to the event, Mueller and Coffey have already had success on the world level, winning gold in the women’s four at the 2013 World Rowing Championships. In addition, Mueller, Eisser and Latz won gold in the quad at this year’s World Rowing Cup II.

Lightweight Men’s Quadruple Sculls

The U.S. narrowly missed the finals in this event in 2012 and 2013 and are hoping for a better result this summer with an entirely new crew from Riverside Boat Club. Under the guidance of 2012 Olympian Margot Shumway, the crew of Andrew Neils (Manhattan, Kansas), Peter Schmidt (Providence, R.I.), Jacob Georgeson (North Olmsted, Ohio) and Kyle Lafferty (Hockessin, Del.), won the event at the first senior trials.


Lightweight Women’s Quadruple Sculls
 

The U.S. won a silver medal last year in South Korea and have two of the crew returning this year in Hillary Saeger (Dedham, Mass.), who also won a bronze medal in the event in 2011, and Helen Tompkins (Friendswood, Texas.). Rounding out the Vesper Boat Club crew is Sarah Giancola (Buffalo, N.Y.) and Mary Jones (Huntsville, Ala.).


Men’s Four 

All four members of the 2013 bronze medal crew will be returning again this year. After its performance last year, this crew remained together and won a second bronze at the second world cup. The USRowing Training Center – Princeton crew features London bronze medalist in the event Henrik Rummel (Pittsford, N.Y.), London spare Michael Gennaro (Havertown, Penn.), London Olympian in the eight Grant James (DeKalb, Ill.), and Seth Weil (Menlo Park, Calif.).

This is a confident crew that has been performing at the top internationally since they debuted in world cup competition in 2013. After taking bronze on Lake Aiguebelette, Rummel summed up the race saying, "It was a good effort, a good race. I think we just lost a little pop in the last six hundred. Hopefully we get a little free speed there and go back and work hard and get faster."  


Women’s Four

Traditionally the women’s four has been used as a development boat for the U.S. women’s team and has featured athletes rowing in their first world championship. This year, the 2014 USRowing Training Center – Princeton boat has some serious experience on the oars, with two-time Olympic champion in the eight Susan Francia (Abington, Pa.), London bronze medalist in the quad, Adrienne Martelli (University Place, Wash.), 2013 gold medalist in the four, Tessa Gobo (Chesterfield, N.H.) and 2013 gold medalist in the eight, Emily Regan (Buffalo, N.Y.). 


Lightweight Men’s Four

A priority boat class for the U.S., the lightweight men’s four training out of the USRowing Training Center – Oklahoma City under coach Cameron Kiosoglous has been making continuous strides. At the 2013 World Rowing Championships, the boat reached the final for the first time in 13 years, finishing fifth. The 2014 boat has three of the crew returning in Anthony Fahden (Lafayette, Calif.), Will Daly (Vail, Colo.) and Robin Prendes (Miami, Fla.). 

Daly rowed in the event at the 2008 Olympic Games, while Fahden and Prendes were in the boat at the 2012 Olympic Games. New to the crew is Edward "Mix" King (Ironton, Mo.), who has represented the U.S. in the event twice at the World Rowing Under 23 Championships.


Men’s Eight 

The men’s eight returned to the podium for the first time since the 2008 Olympic Games with a bronze-medal performance in South Korea. The crew again reached the podium at the second world cup this past June. Five of the 2013 crew is returning, with 2012 Olympian David Banks rejoining the senior squad after taking time away from international racing following the men’s eight’s fourth-place finish in London.

The crew includes two other London Olympians in coxswain Zach Vlahos (Piedmont, Calif.) and Steve Kasprzyk (Cinnaminson, N.J.). Returning from last year are Tom Dethlefs (Lawrenceville, N.J.), Nareg Guregian (North Hills, Calif.), Matt Miller (Fairfax, Va.), Rob Munn (Redmond, Wash.) and Austin Hack (Old Lyme, Conn.). New to the crew and appearing on the national team for the first time is Sam Dommer (Folsom, Calif.).

After finishing third last summer, the men’s squad has been working on faster starts and so far this year, it has been working. "It’s something we have been working on, having a stronger start," Vlahos said, after the world cup win in June. "We wanted to execute it here. We wanted to execute our race plan and I think we did that today. We happened to cross the line first, but more important to us was, we executed our plan and our step towards our main goal of winning the world championships."


Women’s Eight

No matter what the lineup is or who is in the boat, the U.S. women’s eight is the gold standard in women’s rowing. Under head coach Tom Terhaar, the women eight has won one silver and two gold Olympic medals. His eight has won every world championship since 2006, and his crews have amassed a total of 26 medals at the Olympic Games and world championships, combined.

This year has been no different. Racing at the second world cup, Terhaar doubled up nearly his entire team, sending four pairs to the line from his eight lineup. All four made the final, one took silver, another bronze. A few hours later, they went to the line in the eight and rowed a heart-stopping, come-from-behind race that saw them nip Canada at the line for gold.

Following the race, coxswain Katelin Snyder (Winter Park, Fla.) said she never doubted the outcome. "This is our first test of our speed this season, and the other boats we were racing are incredibly fast. We got off the line and looked around and realized we needed to push the base pace now, we can’t wait," said Snyder.

"All nine of us believe in each other and ourselves, and I think it was that belief and hard work that eventually paid off, but didn’t pay off until like what seemed the very end. But I don’t think there was a moment in the race where I was worried," she said. "I really believed in us. We kind of were able to look around at 400 meters and decided it was time."

The USRowing Training Center – Princeton lineup will have seven off this year’s world cup team and seven of the crew that won gold at the 2013 World Rowing Championships. The lineup has three Olympians including 2008 and 2012 Olympic champion Caroline Lind (Greensboro, N.C.), 2012 Olympic champion Meghan Musnicki (Naples, N.Y.) and also includes the return of two-time Olympic champion Eleanor Logan (Boothbay Harbor, Maine), who raced the single in the final at last year’s world championship. 

Also returning to the crew from last year is Grace Luczak (Ann Arbor, Mich.), Lauren Schmetterling (Moorestown, N.J.), Vicky Opitz (Middleton, Wis.) and Amanda Polk (Pittsburgh, Penn.). Heidi Robbins (Hanover, N.H. ), who was injured in training last summer and was unable to compete in the eight, is back in the stroke seat.


Lightweight Men’s Eight

Of the team that finished third in a three-boat race in 2013, only two athletes return for 2014 – Peter Gibson (Belmont, Mass) and Josh Getz (Ann Arbor, Mich.). This year’s team was selected from the lightweight men’s camp at the USRowing Training Center – Oklahoma City. Representing the U.S. is coxswain Stephen Young (Tampa, Fla.), Andrew Weiland (Upper Arlington, Ohio), Gibson, Dan Kirrane (Rockville Centre, N.Y.), Joseph Hanlon (Washington, D.C.), Matthew O’Leary (Westwood, Mass.), Getz, Andrew Hakanson (Newtown Square, Pa.) and Kyle Traub (Eastern, Mass.).

Men’s Arms and Shoulders Single Sculls

New to the sport this year is Upper Arlington Crew’s Blake Haxton (Columbus, Ohio). Just a few weeks into his training at Upper Arlington High School, Haxton contracted a form of virus that destroys flesh and lost both his legs. After attending The Ohio State University, he returned to the sport as a coach, and then started erging. Haxton learned that he was still strong enough to score well on the erg with just his arms and shoulders, and he decided to try adaptive rowing. At 23, he won the Para-Rowing trials, defeating both two-time Paralympian Ron Harvey (Downingtown, Pa.) and Daniel Ahr (Mount Laurel, N.J.) who represented the U.S. in the event at last year’s world championships. 


Women’s Arms and Shoulders Single Sculls

This year, the U.S. will also have a new representative in the women’s arms and shoulders single sculls. CRI’s KateLynne Steinke (East Falmouth, Mass.), a former equestrian athlete, who lost her left leg in a car accident, caught the attention of adaptive coaches and Para-Rowing High Performance Director, Tom Darling, at a Gateway To Gold event in March 2014. She trained at CRI, went to trials and defeated last year’s Para-Rowing women’s single sculler Dana Fink.


Legs, Trunk and Arms Mixed Double Sculls

Andrew Johnson (Riverside, Conn.) has been a fixture on the U.S. National Team since 2009, including the London 2012 Paralympic Team. But he spent those six seasons in the legs, trunk and arms mixed four with coxswain. This year, Johnson teamed up with Stephanie Cox (Raleigh, N.C.) at Community Rowing, Inc., and rowed uncontested at trials to earn a spot on the team in the legs, trunk and arms mixed double.


Legs, Trunk and Arms Mixed Four with Coxswain

Two members of last year’s team were named to the squad that will represent the U.S. in the legs, trunk and arms mixed four with coxswain, including coxswain Jenny Sichel (Clifton, N.J.) and Jaclyn Smith (Williston Park, N.Y.). Also named to the team from Community Rowing, Inc., is Ricky Vandegrift (Cincinnati, Ohio), Zachary Burns (Ann Arbor, Mich.) and Dani Hansen (Peterson, Calif.).
