Video of the Week: Yale Wins Third Straight IRA Title
Texas Two Step | Results from IRAs and NCAAs | European Championships Coverage

This week’s video comes to us from the banter patrol, and hinges on Yale’s stellar 2019 season, with what may be the best intro to a rowing video on the Internet to date. In all seriousness, there’s some sweet rowing footage in the above clip, and Yale’s run has grown from a phenomenon into a dynasty.
Maybe the most remarkable thing? This is the the second time that a program coached by Steve Gladstone has completed a three-peat at the IRA National Championships—the first time coming at California, where the Golden Bears won four straight IRA titles from 1999-2002. All told, Gladstone has now won 14 IRA championships—tying him with Charles Courtney of Cornell for the most by any coach, ever.
