Help us make a list of family rowing dynasties

Inspired by this rugby collection  We thought we’d try to compile a list of families who have a track record of Olympic rowing and sculling. 

  • Gevvie Stone (USA Olympics 2012) and her mother Lisa Hansen (1976 Olympics), father Gregg Stone (1976, 1980 Olympics)
  • Jack Beresford (1920, 1924, 1928, 1932, 1936 Olympics) and his father, Julius (GB 1912 Olympics)
  • Dickie Burnell (1948 Olympics) and his father Charles Burnell (1908 Olympics) – the only father and son to have both won Olympic Golds.

Send us your suggestions in the comments and we’ll build up the list.

    Rowing dynasties? Would surely have to include Richard Phelps and his grandfather, Dick Phelps?

    Am sure it’s a topic to discuss and do some research around at upcoming Henley Royal Regatta……….!
