Biography

Bob Stiles originally rowed with his brother Glen, but then joined up with Fred Thompson. In the finals in Los Angeles a holder for their boat’s rudder broke at the 600 metres mark but they held on to win silver. He and Thompson also won bronze medals at the 1938 British Empire Games. Before World War II Stiles was a designer of caravans, and after the war designed rowing boats. Stiles later restored the boat in which he had won the silver medal.
