Greenwich Crew Alumni Row to Success at the World Championships in the Czech Republic

We've got some exciting news! Here's another reason to feel an abundance of local pride -- courtesy of Greenwich Crew and their alumni!

Over the weekend, the premier youth rowers from around the world convened in the city of Racice in the Czech Republic for the Under 23 World Championships.

Rowers from 54 countries participated in the event with 23 different countries earning a place on the medal podium.

Greenwich Crew had several alumni participate in this event and find success on the world stage.

Lucy Koven, a former Greenwich rower currently rowing at Princeton, along with Caitlin Esse, took home the silver medal in the Womens 2-, one of the most competitive events in world rowing. Finishing in a time of 7:19.7, just 2.5 seconds behind world champion Croatia, the duo more than held their own against the premier competition across the globe.

On the Men’s side, coxswain Jimmy Catalano, currently at Wisconsin, helped steer the Men’s 4+ to a bronze medal finish. With a time of 6:14.7, the boat finished 6 seconds behind Italy’s gold medal pace.

Yet another Greenwich alum, Chris Stich, a rower at Dartmouth, made the grand finals of the Lightweight 4x event, with the US boat finishing in a respectable 6th place, in a time of 6:09.2, 13 seconds behind gold medalist Germany.
