The 26-year-old twin brothers, who are part-time residents of Quogue, possess the tall and lean physique suitable to rowing, while the special connection they have as twins makes them the perfect team for the two-man boat they’ll be rowing in Beijing in August.
The Harvard graduates earned their spot on the team after competing in the U.S. qualifier on June 25 in Princeton, New Jersey. They will depart for Beijing on July 25 to represent the United States in the two-man boat.

Their dedication to the sport in the face of those obstacles is a testament to their persistence and desire to succeed....================================================
