The 2019 Cornell LM8+ celebrates their win at the IRA

row2k's Virtual IRA 2020 - Men's Lightweight Eight

With the IRA falling victim to the COVID-19 crisis this year, row2k offers you our Virtual IRA 2020; we've taken 16 of the top IRA Lightweight Eight Champion crews going back to the 2000 IRA, and created matchups using our proprietary seeding formula. The top crews from each matchup will move on to the next round each week, until a champion is crowned.

Voting for the Semifinals is open from Monday, May 18th until Friday, May 22nd (5pm EST)

Gotta love that Navy factoid: "Only crew in the bracket that produced a National team rower, an MD, a Navy SEAL and a Top Gun pilot."

Really disappointed in the rest of the field's inability to produce a NAVY Top Gun pilot and NAVY seal. C'mon MIT, are you even trying!?

And this guy became a SEAL after getting his Masters at MIT: https://www.navy.mil/submit/display.asp?story_id=78144

It takes all kinds!

Not a rower, however.
