Gevvie Stone

Raised in Newton, Massachusetts, Gevvie Stone grew up around rowing. Her parents, Gregg and Lisa, were both US national team members in the late 1970s. Gevvie first rowed at age 14 at Camp Onaway but waited until her junior year in high school to commit to the sport more fully. Her junior year, after she realized that she might make a better rower than a soccer or lacrosse player, she began rowing in the fall and spring at the Winsor School, a small all-girls school in Boston. Coached by her mom, her high school four won the USRowing Youth National Championships in her junior and senior year in addition to the scholastic 4+ event at Women's Henley Regatta. 
 
Gevvie then went to college at Princeton where she majored in US History, fulfilled her pre-medical requirements, and rowed. She raced in an undefeated freshman 8+ and, in her junior year (2006), an NCAA-champion, undefeated varsity. In the summer of 2006 and 2007, Gevvie raced for the US on the Under-23 teams stroking the eight and the quad, respectively, to victories. 
 
After graduating, Gevvie began applying to medical school while trying out unsuccessfully for the 2008 Olympic team. She entered Tufts University School of Medicine in the fall of 2008 unsure of whether she would continue to row competitively. Victories at head races in the fall of 2008, the encouragement of her parents, and new speed in the single drew her back to the sport.
 
Gevvie took a two-year leave of absence after her second year of medical school to focus on her aspirations of making the US team for the 2012 Olympics.  She won National Selection Regatta I in 2010, earning her the opportunity to race for the US at World Cup III as the single sculler for the first time. In 2011, she represented the US in the women's single at World Cup II and III and at the World Championships. She won non-qualified Olympic trials in 2012 and went on to qualify the single for the US at the Qualification Regatta, earning her the opportunity to represent the US in the women's single sculls at the 2012 Olympics. Gevvie finished 7th at the Olympics.

After taking another year off to finish medical school, Gevvie launched a comeback, finishing 9th in 2014, 4th and 2015, and culminating with a silver medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics. After taking two years off to start her medical residency, Gevvie is once again back, with her sights firmly set on the Tokyo Olympics.

She wouldn't have been able to do it without the support of family and friends and coaching from her Dad in addition to Charley Butt, the Cambridge Boat Club Varsity Quad, Igor Belakovskiy, Russ Cone, Tom Bohrer and more.
