Hack recap

Stanford oarsman Austin Hack earned his second medal of the summer in international competition Sunday, helping the U.S. eight to the bronze medal at the World Rowing Championships in CHungju, South Korea.

Hack had previously been part of the U.S. eight that captured the gold medal at the Samsung World Rowing Cup #3 event in Lucerne, Switzerland in July.

This weekend, the eight found itself in sixth position at the quarter-mark  of the race, but steadily moved its way up the ladder, rowing through Poland, the Netherlands and France to get into medal contention. The U.S. boat would finish the race there, just over three seconds back of gold medal-winner Great Britain and second-place Germany.

For Hack and the crew, it was the first medal in the eight at a world championship or Olympic Games for the U.S. since the 2008 Beijing Games.
