Personal: Andrew’s brother, Charlie, was a two-time member of the U.S. Junior National Team…He enjoys reading about economics, playing badminton and ultimate disc with his brother and playing with his two Labradoodles, Magnolia and Henley…Andrew chose rowing because he mistakenly thought it would be similar to sailing…His father is the most influential person in his athletic career because he taught Andrew how to race and train…Andrew is very grateful to Yan Vengerovsky and Volodymyr Opalnyk for helping him to learn to love training.
