Video of the Week: If there’s no wind, row…

By now pretty much everyone knows the story of “the boys in the boat” but I came across this video the other day and thought it did a good job of summarizing UW’s story and highlighting what was going on in the world in the lead up to the 1936 games (specifically as a result ofย the depression in the US and as the Nazis began rising to power in Germany).

Fun fact: Bob Moch, the coxswain, was the head coach at MIT for five years in the 40s while he was going to Harvard Law School.
