Happy Presidents’ Day

Happy Presidents’ Day!

On this most presidential of all days, I began to wonder if any of our Presidents ever rowed. Not surprisingly, thanks to the Harvard Gazette, I found that former President and famous outdoorsman Teddy Roosevelt rowed the Charles when he attended Harvard, class of 1880. I also discovered that former President Jimmy Carter who turned 90 last year likes to erg. According to FitnessRepairParts.com, Carter who disappointed a lot of athletes with the 1980 Olympic Boycott of the Moscow Games personally called in search for a part for his rowing machine in 2011.
