Tessa Gobbo (NMH '09, Brown '13) won the World Rowing Championship in the seven seat of the Women's 8+ event in Aiguebelette, France! This is the tenth consecutive gold medal finish in the event for the very dominant U.S. women's team. The team's finish (handily) qualifies the U.S. for this event at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Tessa was the athlete quoted from the gold medal-winning crew: “We stayed in our boat and in our race. It’s not just us: so many people are training and working hard to make only nine of us win.”
