Biography

Paul Costello was the first Olympic rower to win three consecutive gold medals in the same event. Costello won two national titles in the single sculls, those in 1919 and 1922, but he was best known as a double sculler. In that boat, partnered mostly by John Kelly and later by Charles McIlvaine, he won innumerable national titles, both in the U.S. and Canada.
