Biography

Paul Enquist tried out for the basketball team at Washington State but when he was cut, turned to rowing. After graduating he rowed with the University of Washington club teams, and helped them win the Grand Challenge and Visitors Challenge Cups at the 1977 Henley Royal Regatta. Enquist later turned to sculling, pulling a single for awhile, but then joined up with [Brad Lewis] to win the 1984 Olympic gold medal in double sculls. Enquist basically retired from active competition just after that gold medal and started working back in Washington on his father’s fishing boat. He later bought the boat from his father and started a full-time career as a fisherman and then a longshoreman.
