US Olympic Rower Achieves 13-Year-Old Dream!
Hard work pays off! Nick LaCava, a 25-year-old Weston native and Columbia University grad, spent endless hours training as a lightweight rower before making the 2012 U.S. Olympic Rowing team. He finished the 2012 Olympics with Final Olympic Qualification Regatta, 1st (lightweight four) and 8th in men’s lightweight four highlights. LaCava considers the Olympics his "big moment" and something he has been dreaming of since he started rowing at 13 years old.
