Gevvie Stone

Alone Together

When Rio silver medallist Gevvie Stone dug deep to find her edge in the single scull, she grounded herself in familiar bedrock.

Dropped from the US Women’s Rowing Team in 2008 Gevvie retreated north to home water, the River Charles, progressed her study of medicine and asked around among local rowers for a coach. Several politely refused but when Gevvie asked her father, Gregg, he agreed.

Gevvie’s rowing, at that point, was “frankly horrible,” says Gregg. “She’d lost her confidence and feel for the boat and was trying to do things in the boat that weren’t appropriate for her”.

“So, I began by trying to help her find her own rhythm back and get more comfortable in a single. I didn’t talk much, we just rowed side-by-side”. Gregg shares some of the similarities that aided their work: “We are the same body type. We have long femurs, short backs and we’re not very strong”. Gevvie naturally tried to match her father’s own championship-winning style. Once she could catch him, Gregg took a head start, then coached from a double and then, ultimately, from a launch.
