“I coach and cox and one thing I tell my crews is to breathe slowly through their nose on recovery to help slow down the slide.

Quick, forceful exhale on the drive tightens the core muscles and slow, controlled inhale provides a longer recovery time.”
– Valerie Gorman, lexicographer, rower and rowing coach.
Sculling is easy to learn, but tough to master. Anyone can get in a boat and paddle around, but to get anywhere requires extreme balance.”
– Lynda Carter, Rower, Actress, Singer, Songwriter, Miss World USA 1972

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
