Rowing (sport)
Rowing, often referred to as crew in the United States,[1] is a sport whose origins reach back to Ancient Egyptian times. It involves propelling a boat (racing shell) on water using oars. By pushing against the water with an oar, a force is generated to move the boat. The sport can be either recreational for enjoyment or fitness, or competitive, when athletes race against each other in boats.[2] There are a number of different boat classes in which athletes compete, ranging from an individual shell (called a single scull) to an eight-person shell with coxswain (called a coxed eight). Modern rowing as a competitive sport can be traced to the early 10th century when races were held between professional watermen on the River Thames

Alf Hansen
Alf John Hansen (born 13 July 1948) is a retired rower from Norway.[2][3] In 1976, he won a gold medal at the Montreal Olympic Games in the double scull event (2x) with his brother Frank Hansen. The Hansen brothers started their career with a silver medal at the 1974 world championships, and followed that up with a gold medal at the 1975 world championships. They would go on to win the 1978 and 1979 world championships in the double scull. Unfortunately the Norwegian Rowing Federation boycotted the Moscow Olympics in 1980, so the brothers were unable to defend their Olympic title. Frank officially retired after the Moscow Olympics. Alf continued his career with a new partner and won gold, then silver at the world championships together with Rolf Thorsen in 1982 and 1983. He further won a silver medal in the Olympic Games in Seoul in 1988[2] and ended his professional career after the worlds in 1991 at the age of 43.[3] Hansen was awarded the Thomas Keller Medal in 1990
