But There Could Have Been Another Great Contender
British rowing team of Andrew Triggs Hodge, Tom James, Pete Reed and Alex Gregory win gold at the 2012 Olympics
Team GB, better known as Great Britain, has dominated in the 2012 Olympics in the sport of rowing, on both the male and female side. This could be in Britons DNA from centuries of sailing and conquering the world. After all, it has been one of the most impressive empires in world history.
However, there is a group that could make quite the contender in the sport of rowing. That's right. I'm talking about the Cubans that row to Miami seeking asylum. Men and women that braved the waves and sharks of the Atlantic Ocean and the Bermuda triangle. If rowing from a shark can't propel one to victory, nothing will. Just teasing.
