In 1952, Charlie Logg was a junior at Rutgers with only three years of rowing experience and had never sat in a pair-oared shell until three months before the Olympics. Worse yet, his Olympic crewmate, [Tom Price], had never rowed until the Olympic year. So at the Olympics, Logg and Price predictably finished dead last in their first heat behind boats from Switzerland, Britain, and Belgium. But Logg and Price came through the repÃªchage and defeated those same three shells in the finals to win a gold medal, and earn the sobriquet, "The Cinderella Kids", in the process. Logg served in the U.S. Army for six years after the Olympics and, after winning a PanAm gold with Price in 1955, they made an abortive attempt to qualify together for the 1956 U.S. Olympic team. Through the 1960s he was involved in several companies in the helicopter industry but left that in 1971 to start his own farming operation in Florida.
