MCCUNE-ZIERATH GIVES ALL FOR USA
8/12/2018 - Former Gopher, Douglas McCune-Zierath, competed at the 2018 FISU World University Rowing Championship with the USA World University team. Seated four set in the Men's 8+, the USA earned 4th place (5:46) in a brutal final on Sunday, August 12th against Great Britain (5:38), Poland (5:41), and Italy (5:43). The results have certainly left the USA craving more, but still what an incredible accomplishment. We are eager to see where Doug goes next in his future rowing endeavors.
Shout out to Greg Miller, Dan Jenkins, Tom Brady, Caleb Brown, Nick Schmidt, Nathan Whitaker, Kevin Hinkle, and Henri Laliberte for their amazing effort. Check out their video made by Milo Green below.
“Perhaps the seeds of redemption lay not just in perseverance, hard work, and rugged individualism. Perhaps they lay in something more fundamental—the simple notion of everyone pitching in and pulling together.”
― Daniel James Brown, The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics
