The Craig Fahle Show

Team USA Rower, Tom Peszek

Friday August 3, 2012

Craig speaks with Olympic Rower, Tom Peszek, a Farmington Hills native, and U-of-M alum who got into rowing as something fun and active to do while in school. In 2011, he won in the pair at the Senior World Championship Trials and went on to finish ninth at the 2011 World Rowing Championships, which helped the U.S. secure its berth for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Peszek won the men's pair at the U.S. Olympic Trials for qualified small boats. That pair will represent the U.S. at the 2012 London Olympic Games, when both rowers make their debuts on the world's biggest stage.

A special thanks to Daniel Isabella; a young southeast Michigan resident, and budding radio producer, who alerted the producers of The Craig Fahle Show to Tom Peszek's story. Thanks, Daniel!
