LIVE from USRowing with Barb Grudt, Northeast Rowing Center
LIVE from the USRowing Convention with #RRUSA producer Charlotte Pierce. Charlotte talked with two-time Olympian, two-time World Medalist and two-time CRASH-B World Record holder, Barbara Grudt.
Director Grudt is one of only a handful of athletes in the world from her era to medal internationally in both sculling and sweep events. She turned her successful rowing career into an equally successful coaching career. Barb was the Varsity Coach for 9 years at Dartmouth College and 9 years at her alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania. She now serves as Director of Rowing and Girls’ Rowing Coach at the Peddie School.
On the international scene, Barb coached for six years at the national team level, four with the U.S. Junior Women’s National Team and two with U.S. Under 23 crews. Her wide range of experience and success across all disciplines in rowing and all levels of competition make her uniquely qualified to guide the development of young athletes. Her goal is to help camp participants improve their skills and build the confidence necessary to pursue their own successful rowing careers.
