Row to Rio: 2016 US Rowing Team O’Leary/Tomek

Medi-Dyne_USALogo

Row to Rio 2016: Interview with US Rowing Team Tomek/O’Leary

Rio De Janeiro 2016. It’s on the mind of every Team USA member competing there this August. In particular, this is what’s on the mind of Team USA rowers Meghan O’Leary and Ellen Tomek. For an Olympian, the road to the games in Rio is a long one full of bumps, twists, and turns. Meghan and Ellen were kind enough to spend a few minutes away from their training in Princeton, New Jersey to talk with us on the phone. Between talking about some of the controversy surrounding this year’s games, understanding the struggles of being an elite rower in the US, and learning their backgrounds, there was plenty to talk about. Here are some of the highlights of the conversation:

How did you guys get started in rowing?

Ellen: “I started rowing at the University of Michigan my freshman year as a walk-on athlete. I went to a tryout where they tested our fitness and rowing potential. I made the cut, stuck with it and eventually was put on scholarship.”

Meghan: “Ellen basically came straight here to the Princeton Training Center right after college. I had a little bit of a different path; I played volleyball and softball at the University of Virginia. I graduated and went to work full time with ESPN. It was a couple years later when I had just moved to Connecticut. I wanted to do something new and ended up just Googling rowing. This was about six years ago, the summer of 2010.  I literally didn’t know anything about the sport. They have a great rowing program at the University of Virginia and ironically, the head rowing coach had actually approached me while I was still at school and said ‘hey, you should try rowing.’ I think it kind of planted the seed. So I signed up for some learn-to-row sessions, absolutely fell in love with it, and I haven’t looked back since. I threw myself into it and managed to find myself at the National Training Center a little over a year later, in fall 2011.”

When did you know you were good enough?

Ellen: “I made the Beijing Olympic Team in 2008, just two years out of college. The first year that I was training with the squad I made the 2007 National Team. I ended up in the women’s double for the 2008 Olympics and 2009 National Team. After that, I was injured for quite a bit and ended up missing out on the London Games, but decided that I wasn’t done training. Once Meghan and I started rowing together in 2013, we knew we had potential and could be competitive internationally. We made it our goal to develop the boat together over the course of the full quadrennial. Even back when we started rowing together, three and half years ago, we always believed we had the potential to go to Rio and to win a medal.”

How many women were you competing against during trials?

Meghan: “The women’s double is a Trials boat, which means it is an open event and anyone can enter. It’s interesting and unique to the sport of rowing. Over the last few years there have been a variety of competitors and contenders trying to win the double and represent the United States in that boat. We have represented the United States in the women’s double since 2013. We may have been considered the favorites going in, but there were definitely a lot of great athletes there. There were seven other crews that we were competing against us for the right to represent the United States as the Olympic Women’s Double in Rio. It definitely wasn’t a sure thing going into the regatta, so we were nervous and are very proud of what we accomplished.”

 

Where does the money in the sport of rowing come from domestically and internationally?

Ellen: “We are supported by non-profit organizations, USRowing and the USOC. We earn a modest monthly living stipend that maybe covers rent and groceries. The lack of funding is in part due to rowing not being a mainstream sport, so there’s not as much visibility.”

Meghan: “Rowers are superstars in Great Britain, New Zealand, and many European countries. Several of those athletes make real salaries and have endorsements and sponsorships. They are sort of like the equivalent of the NBA and NFL stars we have here in the U.S. In many countries outside of the U.S., rowers can keep rowing for much longer because of the income potential, whereas here in the States it can be difficult to maintain a long career in the sport due solely to the need to support yourself and your family.”

Are you nervous about going to Rio for the obvious reasons?

Meghan: “You prepare for so long and train so hard that you want to be able to show up to the Olympics and perform at your highest level. You put in all these hours and then be faced with something you can’t control like the water quality or Zika, is frustrating but we can’t dwell on it. It’s scary, but the best thing we’re trying to do is not stress about it and prepare in the best ways we can: lots of bug spray, long sleeves, and minimizing exposure to the water, all that stuff.  It’s funny how some people have asked “Well, did you ever consider not going to Rio?” and we of course, answer ‘absolutely not!’ You don’t put your whole life into this only to say ‘no, thanks.’

I will forever be your Sports Shield’s biggest supporter & cheerleader! I have told all my running friends about this product!!! IT IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!
— Rhonda Gillis

HOLY COW!!!!!!

I just wanted to take the opportunity to write you guys and thank you for your amazing Sports Shield!!!

I am a runner who suffered  from chafing until I was introduced to your product this past weekend at the Rock n Roll half marathon in Chicago. I do a 5 or 6 mile run twice a week, and a 10 mile run once a week. I run half marathon just about every month. I have tried lots of products to try to stop the chafing I get along my center bra line, but to no avail. The chafing was so bad, I would be a bloody mess by the end of my races (see pic).

The product I settled on was Glide, because although it didn’t prevent the chafing, it did make it more tolerable. I stopped by your booth at the RNR Expo on Saturday, and inquired about your anti-chafing products. This great guy (I lost his business card), told me he had the perfect product!

 I was skeptical, having tried so many other products, but he assured me his product would beat any product I’ve tried. He gave me a free sample and I went on my way. The next morning when I was getting ready for my half, I decided to go ahead a try Sport Shield out.  HOLY COW!!!!!! Not only did I not have chafing, but I was not even red!  I will forever be your Sports Shield’s biggest supporter & cheerleader! I have told all my running friends about this product!!! IT IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!  Thank you so much for ending my chafing problem! I hope to see you all at the Rock N Roll half marathon in Va. Beach over Labor Day weekend so I can buy more of this awesome product! Thank you so much for creating the Sports Shield!!!!!!

 — Rhonda Gillis

 

SWIMMERS

 Need to have for open water swim.

LOVE IT. I did not notice that I needed this in time for my last race. I borrowed some other brand and I got a terrible rub rash. I will never swim in my wetsuit again without it.

— Tim L. from Minneapolis, MN

 

Better than BodyGlide

Product rolls on nicely, far better than Body Glide. I use this under my wetsuit and lately anytime I swim for long periods in lakes and ocean.

— Carl M. from Fleetwood, PA

 

Great Product!
This product rolls-on easily, and worked all day for my boys, while in the ocean and sand.

— S from NC

RUNNERS

 2Toms friction guard

This product when properly used will save a “pound” of flesh! Works great to protect from chaffing and blisters! A must for serious runners and other sports. Stops foot blisters and raw areas.

Female Runner

I’m a well-endowed runner… I’ve run countless 1/2 marathons, 1 full marathon and am training for my 2nd which means 30-40 miles running/week.

I’ve tried it all (it seems)… I’ve tried the sprays, the glides, the goops, the whatfors and NOTHING has worked. I had raw skin in places I need skin, UNTIL someone recommended 2Toms.

The first time I used it was for a 17-mile run and I closed my eyes to grimace in pain during that first shower but was able to slowly peek and then let out the pent up breath I’d been holding because there WAS NO CHAFE! what!? How can that be!? I almost cried in relief because, well, I was so relieved.

So I’ve recommended this to so many other people I’m thinking about applying to be a sales rep for the company.

— Kristine

 

HIKERS/BACKPACKERS

Works Great!

I have had a life-long problem with chafing between my thighs while backpacking in hot weather.  This product completely prevented the problem.

The towelettes are easy to use and I was able to use the same towelette over and over for a 3 day trip.  They are also very light which is good for backpacking.The towelettes work by imparting a slippery, silicone like coating that greatly reduces friction between moving parts.

— Daryl from Seattle

Worked Wonderfully

Worked wonderfully.  Solved a life long problem with chafing in my crotch (armpit between my legs).  One towelette lasted for daily use on a 4 day backpacking trip.  Feels very silky…like silicone.

 

DIABETIC INJURY PREVENTION

I’m Diabetic.  Cannot Hurt My Feet. This Truly Works!

This is the real deal! I use this for blisters and can’t believe it works perfectly!

Roll on formula is odorless, colorless, non sticky and it only goes away with soap!
I walk 6 miles daily. The shoes I wear are MBT’s that are bulky and heavy so blisters in certain spots are inevitable.
I’m diabetic and cannot hurt my feet at all!
My heels have paper thin skin and I couldn’t continue sticking Dr.Sholl’s MoleSkin or any type of bandage to protect me from blisters because by the time I remove them I most of the time remove part of my own skin too!
This product is fantastic.  I hope this review helps you make a better purchase!

— A. L. Welch By

 

GENERAL RUBBING & CHAFING USAGE

Great Chub Rub Product!

I use this between my thighs under dresses in the summertime and it’s the best product I’ve used! I only have to reapply every 4 hours or so. Will definitely be purchasing again!

— Amanda

I will forever be your Sports Shield’s biggest supporter & cheerleader! I have told all my running friends about this product!!! IT IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!
— Rhonda GillisHola! Quería tener la oportunidad de escribirles y agradecerles por su increíble producto Sports Shield!

Hola! Soy una corredora que sufría mucho de roces en la piel hasta que me presentaron  su producto este fin de semana en la media maratón de Rock n Roll en Chicago. Corro entre 5 ó 6 km dos veces por semana, y una carrera de 10 millas una vez a la semana. Corro media maratón casi todos los meses. He probado un montón de productos para tratar de detener el roce que me provoca el sostén cuando corro, pero todo fue en vano. El roce era tan malo, que al final de mis carreras siempre terminaba sangrienta.

El producto con el que me establecí fue Glide, aunque no elimino el roce, ayudaba a que fuera un poco más tolerable. Pasé por su stand en la Expo RNR el sábado, y pregunté acerca de sus productos anti-rozaduras. Este gran tipo (he perdido su tarjeta), me dijo que tenía el producto perfecto!

Como pueden imaginar fui un poco escéptica, ya que en el pasado había probado muchos productos pero nada había ayudado. Pero él me aseguró que su producto le ganaría a cualquier producto que he probado. Él me dio una muestra gratis y continúe con mi camino. A la mañana siguiente, cuando me estaba preparando para mi media maratón, decidí probar Sport Shield. INCREIBLE!!!!!! No sólo no tenia rozaduras, pero ni siquiera mi piel quedo roja después de la carrera! Siempre estaré agradecida con este producto y sere una de sus fieles compradoras y animadoras de Sports Shield! Le he contado sobre este producto a todos mis amigos corredores! ES ABSOLUTAMENTE INCREIBLE!!!!!!Muchas gracias por ayudarme a terminar mi problema con rozaduras! Espero verlos a todos en el medio maratón de Rock N Roll en Virginia Beach el fin de semana de Labor Day para que pueda comprar más de este producto impresionante! Muchas gracias por crear Sport Shield!!!!!!   –          Rhonda Gillis

 NADADORES

Producto Necesario para Nadar

SportShield THE MUST HAVE CHAFING PREVENTION FOR JUST ABOUT ANY ACTIVITY

2Toms SportShield

ME ENCANTA! No me di cuenta de que lo necesitaba la última carrera que tuve. Pedí prestado alguna otra marca y me dio un terrible sarpudillo en la piel. Nunca voy a nadar en mi traje de neopreno de nuevo sin él.

– Tim L. de Minneapolis, MN

 Mejor que BodyGlide

Producto se desliza en la piel muy fácilmente, mucho mejor que BodyGlide. Yo lo uso bajo mi traje de neopreno y últimamente cada vez que nado por largos períodos en el lago y el océano, lo uso.

– Carl M. de Fleetwood, PA

 Excelente Producto

Este producto se desliza en la pielcon facilidad, y trabajó todo el día para mis hijos, mientras estaban en el océano y la arena.

– S de NC

CORREDORES

2Toms Ayuda Con La Fricción

Cuando se usa correctamente este producto le ahorrará una “libra” de la carne! Funciona muy bien para protegerlo de rozaduras y ampollas! Imprescindible para los corredores serios y otros deportes. Ayuda a eliminar las ampollas en los pies.

 Corredora

Soy una corredora muy bien dotada… He corrido innumerables media maratones, 1 maratón completa y estoy entrenando para mi segunda maratón  lo que significa correr entre 30 a 40 millas por semana.

Lo he intentado todo.. He intentado los aerosoles, los rodillos, las pomadas, y nada ha funcionado. Tenía la piel abierta en varios lugares que necesito piel, hasta que alguien me recomiendo 2Toms.

La primera vez que lo usé fue para una carrera de 17 millas, y cerré los ojos para hacer una mueca de dolor durante esa primera ducha. Fui capaz de mirar lentamente y luego deje escapar el aliento reprimido que había estado aguantando porque no había rozaduras! qué? ¿Cómo puede ser eso? Casi lloré de alivio porque, me sentía tan aliviada.

Así que lo he recomendado a muchas otras personas, y estoy pensando en aplicar para ser una representante de ventas para la compañía.

– Kristine.

 

EXCURSIONISTAS / MOCHILEROS

Trabaja Muy Bien

He tenido problemas toda mi vida con el roce entre mis muslos mientras ando de mochilero en climas calientes. Este producto previno completamente ese problema.

Las toallitas son fáciles de usar, fui capaz de utilizar la misma toallita una y otra vez durante un viaje de 3 días. Son también muy ligeras que es algo muy bueno para mochileros. Las toallitas funcionan al impartir una silicona resbaladiza, que ayuda a reducir considerablemente la fricción entre las partes móviles.

Daryl from Seattle

 

Funciono De Maravilla

Trabajó maravillosamente. Resolvió un problema que he tenido toda mi vida con el roce en mi entrepierna (axila entre las piernas). Una toallita duró para el uso diario en un viaje de mochilero que duro 4 días. Se siente muy sedoso… como silicona.

 

PREVENCIÓN PARA LESIONES DE DIABETES

Soy diabética. No puedo dañarme los pies. Esto realmente funciona!

Este producto es excelente! Yo lo uso para las ampollas y no puedo creer que funciona perfectamente!

La formula de Rodillo, es sin olor, transparente, y no es pegajosa y sólo desaparece con jabón! Camino 6 millas diariamente. Los zapatos que uso son de MBT que son voluminosos y pesados ​​por lo que ampollas en ciertos lugares es inevitable.

 

EL ROCE GENERAL

Yo lo uso entre mis muslos bajo los vestidos en el verano y es el mejor producto que he usado! Sólo tengo que volver a aplicar cada 4 horas más o menos. Sin duda volvere a comprar otra vez!

It can be used every day, is non-toxic and non-greasy, and can be easily removed with soap and water.
