Past & Present Rowers Featured In June Rowing News
The June issue of Rowing News is littered with mentions of Washington crew, from the current to the past.
On Page 36, you will find a feature on current men's varsity eight 2-seat Hans Struzyna, who recalled the furious sprint the Huskies used to win the IRA National Championships last year. Famously, Washington made a final push to move from third and take down Cal, just barely edging their bow ball past the Golden Bears.
A lot of what is involved in a sprint, according to Struzyna, is trust in your teammates. You have to know the other seven rowers will have your back when it comes time to make a "kitchen-sink" sprint towards the finish.
"You have to look inside yourself and realize how much you want it and what you're willing to give to get it," Struzyna said. "Just accept that it's going to hurt and throw the kitchen sink at it."
As part of the cover story chronicling the beauty of rowing's female athletes, Husky fans can also see a photo shoot with the current members women's USA national team. Included in the tasteful shoot is Husky oarswoman Megan Kalmoe, who is shown pumping some serious iron and rowing in a double.
The June issue should be on newsstands soon, so check it out.
