Meghan Musnicki, the final connection to the eight dynasty: U.S. Olympic rowing team roster announced

Meghan Musnicki and the US Olympic Rowing Team for Paris: An American Record in the Making

The U.S. Olympic rowing team for Paris has been announced, and Meghan Musnicki has been named as one of the first 21 rowers. At 41 years old, Musnicki will be the oldest American woman on the team and is a two-time gold medalist who has been part of the U.S. women’s eight dynasty that dominated from 2006 to 2016.

Musnicki, nicknamed “Moose,” has competed in four Olympics and is looking to tie the American record for most Olympic rowing appearances. She initially struggled to make the national team but eventually found success and has been a consistent performer on the global stage. The rest of the Olympic team members named on Monday include Nina Castagna, who will take over as coxswain of the women’s eight. Castagna will follow in the footsteps of other Washington Huskies who have coxed the women’s eight in previous Olympics.

Additional rowers will qualify for the Paris Games through the Olympic Trials in Sarasota and an international qualifying regatta in Lucerne, Switzerland. In addition to Musnicki and Castagna, other notable names on the team include Kelsey Montague and Gia Caruso, who will compete in the women’s double sculls, and Andrew Triggs Hodge, who will lead the men’s four boat.

Overall, this U.S. Olympic rowing team for Paris is filled with experienced athletes who have proven themselves on the global stage and are looking to continue their dominance in Paris.
