1948 London Olympics GP Raw
Rowing Archives/Lenny O'Donnell  · January 4, 2019
This is some pretty gritty footage from the 1948 Olympics. It was shot by George Pocock, who was the boat master (he built them all) for the 1948 Olympic team and also the coach of the coxed four (University of Washington Head Coach Al Ulbrickson declined being the small boats coach after his 8+ was upset at the trials). It was the only boat George Pocock officially coached. They won the gold medal, making Pocock an undefeated 1 for 1 in the Olympics--quite a record!. This is a copy of a dvd made from a poor film transfer. We're looking for the source film and will hopefully have a much better copy made. There is some great stuff in this video, it's a shame it's not been restored. Compare to some of our other films and it's easy to why it's worth restoring these classics.
