In his era, at 6-7½, Jim Storm was the tallest US Olympian who did not play on the basketball team. He was the stroke in a double with [Cy Cromwell] at the 1964 Olympics where they lost by several seconds to a Soviet crew. Storm had attended Pomona College but was rowing for the San Diego RC in 1964. In 1967 he finally won a gold medal, again in the double sculls (with [James Dietz]), but this time at the Pan American Games. He graduated in 1971 from the University of California Medical School and became a practicing psychiatrist.
