Quite a story from the 1936 Olympics as an underdog rowing crew from UW represented the US and won the gold medal. The video from Leni Reifenstal and the CBS narration really give a thrill.

I have not heard this forgotten story for a few years.

We can say somthing good about UW from time to time, especially since they beat the Nazis.
