1936 Olympics: University of Washington wins Gold.

Olympic Gold Medal 1936 University Of Washington

A great documentary available on Netflix.  The story of a U.S. crew, built entirely from students of the University of Washington.  They traveled across the Atlantic and nullified Hitler’s dream of winning Olympic Gold in the men’s eight.
