Although no relation to the three-time gold medalist, Paul Costello, Pat Costello won almost as many titles. He attended his hometown college, Detroit, graduating in 1954, but his first national title had come years before, in the 1948 intermediate eights. Costello did all his rowing for the Detroit BC and, between 1951 and 1958, won national titles as both a sweeper and a sculler, both here and in Canada. At the 1956 Olympics he was partnered by Jim Gardiner and, although they won their heat rather easily they came upon a great Soviet pair in the finals and were beaten decisively
