Great Quotes and Boats

“I think, for me, the stroke is built around your body being in the right position… It has to be properly supported, especially the catch and the transition from the catch into suspension. You’re always trying to set it up such that, when you’re putting everything you have into the stroke, it’s translating into boat speed rather than just wailing on it.”

– Esther Lofgren (February 28, 1985- ), Rower, Olympic Gold Medalist 2012.
