Biography

Bradley Lewis rowed at U Cal Irvine. He was a member of the 1980 US Olympic team that could not compete because of the boycott. He competed at the World Championships in 1977 in the coxed four, placing ninth, and in 1983 in the coxed pair, finishing sixth. Lewis was featured in the David Halberstam book The Amateurs about the efforts by several American rowers to train for and make the 1984 US Olympic team. The book had a happy ending when Lewis and his partner, [Paul Enquist], won gold at Los Angeles in the double sculls.

Lewis later became an independent filmmaker. In 2000 he produced a documentary, “A Fine Balance,” about the US eight that entered the Sydney Olympics as favorites after winning three consecutive world titles, but struggled to a fifth-place finish. He made his début as an independent filmmaker at the 2002 Newport Beach Film Festival, and has worked on several HBO movie projects.
