Today Show Hosts Test the Waters with Help of Princeton University Rowers

In case you missed it, rowers from Princeton University were featured in Thursday’s edition of the Today Show on NBC.

As part of the special series “Today Takes On”, Today Show hosts Matt Lauer, Al Roker, Natalie Morales and Ann Curry came to Princeton to get a rowing lesson from members of the Princeton University rowing teams.

Coached by Tigers men’s team member Jason Kopelman and women’s team member Kelly Pierce, they learned all about balance, strength, coordination and competition.

To test their newly acquired skills, The Today Show “rainbow team” challenged the Tigers to a race on Lake Carnegie. The Today boat won the first race with the help of four Princeton students, beating eight crew team members — who were blindfolded and had one hand tied behind their backs.
