Al Rossi was the coxswain for the University of Washington four at the 1952 Olympics. The boat won a close race in the first round over Great Britain, but won the semi-finals easily. However, in the finals, there was nothing Rossi could do with the cadence – they were beaten decisively by a Czech team and nosed out of second by the Swiss. After the 1952 Olympics Rossi returned to school, graduating in 1953. He became a teacher and administrator in the Seattle School District, retiring in 1982. He then worked full-time at the Longacres thoroughbred racetrack as the director of programs and printing until 1995.
