Biography

In 1952, Jim Fifer and Duvall Hecht rowed the coxed pairs for the United States at the Olympics, without much success. In 1956 they decided to go it without a coxswain and qualified for the Olympic team in the pairs without by defeating the defending Olympic champions, Chuck Price and Charles Logg, in the Final Trials. At the Olympics, Fifer and Hecht won every race decisively despite consistently understroking the opposition.
