Michaela Makes World Rowing Team + Meet Team USALW4

Michaela Copenhaver is one of the best rowers in the USA. She has her sights on the Olympic Team for 2020 in the Women’s Lightweight Quad. And now she’s one huge step closer! She is part of the Women’s Lightweight Quad Team headed to the World Rowing Championships in Austria. They leave August 18, and we’re thrilled to be cheering them on. Meet the team below!

BUT did you know this World Qualifying team is completely unfunded? That’s right. The Women’s Quad has to pay their own way to represent USA at Worlds! They are so close to reaching their goal. Help them close the gap so they can turn their focus to winning GOLD, not raising coin. Your donation goes directly to the team’s travel costs and is tax deductible.
