The University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar crew--and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal in rowing--was the team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans. Brown traces their story as they defeated elite rivals at Hitler's 1936 Berlin Olympics and shares the experiences of their enigmatic coach, a visionary boat builder, and a homeless teen rower.
