GW Men's Rowing's Tewksbury-Volpe Returns to International Stage
Rising Junior to Compete at World Rowing Under 23 Championships in Italy
July 2, 2014
PRINCETON, N.J. - For the second straight summer, George Washington men's rowing rising junior Jordan Tewksbury-Volpe will represent the United States on the international stage when he rows in US Rowing's Lightweight Four at the World Rowing Under 23 Championships in Varese, Italy, July 23-24.
Last summer, Tewksbury-Volpe competed at the World Rowing Championships in Linz, Austria, in the lightweight double sculls event.
Tewksbury-Volpe, an Italian national with dual citizenship in the United States, was selected for the crew by coach Colin Farrell following a two-week selection camp at US Rowing's headquarters in Princeton, New Jersey.
Tewksbury-Volpe and his fellow oarsmen are currently running a fundraising campaign to raise money for their trip to Italy. You can read more about the crew and their story at their official fundraising page.
The men's rowing team has a decorated history of oarsmen logging international experience.
Other GW Rowing alumni to log international competition include recent graduate Kasey Colander (United States), who competed in the World University Games last summer in Kazan, Russia. Another recent graduate, James Stafford, rowed for the United States at the 2010 CanAmMex Regatta, while alumni Brian Winke '93, Jonathan D'Alba '07 and David Morgenstern '11 have all logged international time as members of various United States teams.
The most notable GW alumnus to row in international competition is GW Athletic Hall of Famer Aquil Abdullah '95, who became the first African American to row as a member of the United States Olympic Team at the Athens Games in 2004.
