It's been a good day for American rowers. First, single sculler Michelle Guerette won silver. Then, the men's eight won bronze. To top it off, the women's eight won gold, the first gold that they had won since 1984. In the past twenty years, the United States had excelled at World Championships, but had come up short in the Olympics. This team, led by coxswain Mary Whipple, won the race over Romania by more than a second.
