Immigrant of the Day: Robin Prendes - Olympic Athlete

Rate this Entry

Robin
Cuban-born Robin Prendes came to the US at the age of six. He began rowing in Miami at the age of 12 and at 18 won the junior world championship title in the single skulls competition. He went on to attend Princeton University. He's competing in the four man light competition in London. NBC reports on the results for his event:



The lightweight men's four crew of Robin Prendes, Nick LaCava, Will Newell and Anthony Fahden  finished its Olympic campaign with a second-place finish in the B final of the event to measure eighth overall in the world.

"The start wasn't terrible," Newell said. "We were in sixth, but we were sort of in the pack. We weren't too worried about the margins. There was less looking out of the boat. We just tried to get into a good long rhythm. I think we executed that well, and it left us a little more juice in the last quarter.

"It was mixed results, but overall the Olympics have been pretty positive. We're definitely in a better position than we were last year, it's an encouraging thing."
