Video of the Week: Mike Teti from the Final Olympic Qualifier in Lucerne



This week's video comes to us courtesy of the World Rowing FISA YouTube Channel, and features U.S. men's eight head coach Mike Teti, standing on the dock in Lucerne following the qualification of his crew for the 2012 Olympic Games. Basically, this is classic Mike–engaging, down to earth, and funny. Having been brought in following the eight's failure to qualify for the Olympics last year in Bled, Teti was charged with the task of assembling a crew that would ensure the U.S. would claw its way back to the Games–and he did just that. Now, it's time to refocus and get ready for London. Given Teti's experience coaching the eight (let's just say we might have seen this coming), not to mention the job he has already done, we're confident that good things are on the horizon in Eton.

Still to come this week: NCAAs and ACRAs recap and review–time to take a look at how our picks and predictions turned out over the weekend!

  1. I'd also like to add that California men's assistant coach Luke Agnini was hugely supportive throughout the process, in many ways, not least of which was helping athletes to find local accommodations.
