In the double sculls, John Kelly and his cousin, Paul Costello, won easily in both the semi-finals and finals. Kelly and Costello returned in 1924 to defend their gold medal. Kelly then retired. But Costello won a third consecutive gold medal in the event at Amsterdam in 1928, partnered by Charles McIlvaine.
