Brett is a rower, and competed in the men’s fours (quadruple sculls). His boat came in eleventh, and a Russian boat took the gold medal during the 2004 Olympics. If you are unfamiliar with rowing, a scull is a boat with the rowers pulling two oars each (one in each hand). When the rowers have one long oar (both hands on one oar), it is known as a sweep.
