A veteran with the Canadian rowing team for more than a decade, coxswain Brian Price added an Olympic silver medal to his legendary resume at London 2012 with the men’s eight crew.
A three-time Olympian, Price coxed the gold-medal winning heavyweight crew at Beijing 2008 and finished fifth in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, where he was also coxswain for the men’s eight crew.
A three-time World champion coxswain for the men’s eight in 2002, 2003 and 2007, Price had his first international experience at the 1999 Pan American Games in Winnipeg.
After taking a break from the sport following the Beijing Games, Price returned to competition in December 2011 after being a motivational speaker for two years. Price is a cancer survivor who suffered from acute lymphoblastic leukemia as a child and his growth was stunted due to heavy chemotherapy treatment during developmental years.
