John Welchli graduated from Brown in 1950 and was a fine all-round athlete for the Providence school. He competed for all four years on the swim, crew, and track teams, and ran cross-country for two years. Welchli was rather small for a world-class rower, only 160 lbs. (73 kg.), and he won numerous national championships in lightweight boats. Rowing for the Detroit BC, he was partnered at the Olympics by the McKinlay twins, Art and John and Jim McIntosh. Welchli still rows and competes in masters' rowing events.
