Rowing Athletes

The USRowing National High Performance Center has provided training opportunities for a number of athletes who’ve gone on to compete on the world stage, including Pan American Games, World Championships and the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games

Most recently in the 2016 Olympic Games, OKC rowers Tony Fahden, Mix King, Tyler Nase and Robin Prendes competed in the men’s lightweight four, and rowers Ellen Tomek & Megan O’Leary raced in the women’s double sculls. Rowers who have previously trained in Oklahoma City include Grace Luczak, who competed in the women’s pair, along with Devery Karz & Kate Bertko, who competed in the women’s lightweight double sculls.
