“Mrs. Bayer was a world leader in introducing women to the sport of rowing. Through her efforts, women’s rowing was added to the summer Olympic schedule. During her life time she earned every award given by the national rowing association: Nominee for the Sullivan Award from rowing, member of the first Women’s rowing Olympic Committee, member of the National Rowing Foundation (NRF) Rowing Hall of Fame, First United States Gold rowing medal, Carlin Award, Coach of the Year, and named one of rowing’s 10 most influential people of the century. She to this day holds the world record on the rowing ergometer for women 90 .”

* Affiliate – mobilize third parties, including other customers, to become even more helpful to the people you interact with.”
