1960 Olympic Games Men's Coxless Four Final
Rome, Italy

Lake Washington Four Without Wins 1960 Olympic Gold In Rome

Two 1956 Olympic Gold medalists, Dan Ayrault from the pair with coxswain and Rusty Wailes from the Yale eight, teamed up with John Sayre and Ted Nash in the four without cox to overcome a loss in their heat caused by a broken oar, and then won the only US Gold medal at the 1960 Olympics in Rome. Coming from last place 500 meters into the final, this Lake Washington Rowing Club crew rowed through the field, catching the leader from the Soviet Union in the last 500 to take the Gold.
