USRowing has announced the PR3 mixed four with coxswain crew who will represent the United States at the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
The PR3 mixed four with coxswain – composed of two men, two women and a coxswain – was chosen through a selection camp process. The boat has the following rowers:
Karen Petrik (Glastonbury, Conn./University of Rhode Island)
Charley Nordin (Alameda, Calif./Gonzaga University)
John Tanguay (Pennington, N.J./Columbia University)
Dani Hansen (Patterson, Calif./University of Washington)
Allie Reilly (North Kingstown, R.I./University of Rhode Island)
The crew is the same five athletes who won silver in the event at the 2019 World Rowing Championships in Linz, Austria. The U.S. has won six consecutive silver medals in the event at the world level including at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Brazil.
Six-time national team member Hansen is the lone returnee from the 2016 Paralympic crew. Reilly and Nordin are two-time world’s silver medallists in the event, while Tanguay and Petrick each have won one silver medal during the streak.
The Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games are scheduled to take place from 24 August to 5 September, with para-rowing events beginning on 27 August.
In total, the U.S. will be sending four boats to the Paralympic Games. The PR1 men’s single sculls, PR1 women’s single sculls and PR2 mixed double sculls were selected through the 2020 U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Team Trials in April.
