We caught up with USRowing’s, Grace Latz, at an autograph signing during the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Latz is coming off her first Olympics, where she placed 5th in the quadruple sculls category. Latz has also participated in the World Rowing Championships, the Henley Royal Regatta, the Royal Canadian Henley, and more.
On a beautiful night in Sarasota, 94-year-old, Bob Rosas arrives at Mote Marine Aquarium wearing his fishing bucket hat and khaki cargo pants. Rosas isn’t at the aquarium to view the marine life in captivity. Instead, he’s about to see fish, birds and dolphins in their natural habitat.
“Volunteers will be the backbone of the 2017 World Rowing Championships. Without them, this event wouldn’t be able to function.”
