Video Of The Week: Michigan Alumni Honor Bill Schnittman at 2013 Head Of The Charles
The 2013 Head Of The Charles is in the books, and the 49th edition of rowing's 'Fall Classic' had all the drama, close finishes, and great racing that so characterize the event. A great deal of international talent was on display throughout the weekend, with the above crew from Michigan—stroked by 2012 U.S. Olympian Tom Peszek—taking fourth place in the men's alumni eight on Saturday afternoon, just three seconds back of a Cambridge alumni crew (Crabtree) stroked by double Olympic gold medalist Tom James of Great Britain. The Michigan crew donned special uniforms, designed by the late Bill Schnittman, in honor of their fallen Wolverine teammate. The championship events were, as usual, loaded—we'll take a closer look at our favorite moments from the 2013 Charles later this week. In the meantime, you can get caught up on all the action in Boston, and view complete regatta results, via the official website of the Head Of The Charles.
Also on tap are more of your recruiting videos—thanks for all your submissions and we'll post our top picks later this week, and feature our overall favorite as next week's #VOTW.
