Biography

Originally from South Africa, Charles Green is believed to be the first winter medallist to be born in the continent of Africa. He was a regular member of the British squad throughout the late thirties and won world titles as part of the [Freddie McEvoy] piloted British four in both 1937 and 1938 and placed second in 1939. Green also partnered McEvoy to a silver medal in the two-man World Championship in 1937 and won another silver in the 1939 four-man event.
