Larry had coached numerous Olympic and National Team crews in the years before he joined Concept2, and went back to coaching after he left us.

Finding Inspiration from Arshay Cooper

Oct 05, 2020

Concept2 recently invited Arshay Cooper, rower, author, speaker and activist, to speak with us about his film, A Most Beautiful Thing. Unlike our last visit in November 2019, this time Arshay visited us via Zoom and we were able to ask questions about the movie.
