Biography

Larry Klecatsky graduated from St. Thomas College in 1963 and earned a medical degree from the University of Minnesota in 1967, but continued to row while doing his medical training.

Klecatsky later competed at the World Championships six times as a lightweight, winning a World silver medal in lightweight double sculls in 1980. He settled near New York and became director of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the New Rochelle Hospital Medical Center, and was also an Associate Professor of Medicine at the New York Medical College.
