Biography

At the 1959 Pan-American Games, the Lake Washington RC four of John Sayre, Ted Nash, Rusty Wailes, and Jay Hall easily won a gold medal. At the 1960 Olympics in Rome, Sayre was in almost the same boat, with Dan Ayrault replacing Hall, and the result was the same – they beat an Italian crew by almost three seconds to win the gold. John Sayre was a graduate of the University of Washington.
