Great Quotes and Boats

 

“Physiologists, in fact have calculated that rowing a two-thousand-meter race-the Olympic standard-takes the same physiological toll as playing two basketball games back-to-back. And it exacts that toll in six minutes.”

-Daniel James Brown, The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold in the 1936 Berlin Olympics.
