2x gold medalist for the U.S. at the World Rowing Championships
Taylor Ritzel Biography
Taylor Ritzel is a rower for the United States Olympic team. Taylor’s career competing at the international level began in 2009 when she won a silver medal with the under-23 world championship team. Taylor won a gold medal as a member of the U.S. National Team varsity eight at the 2010 and 2011 World Rowing Championships. Most recently, Taylor competed for her country at the Olympics for the first time in her career. Rowing in the same eight with which she set a record time at the 2012 World Rowing Cup in Lucerne, Taylor competed in London at the 2012 summer Olympics where she helped the U.S. take home the gold medal.
In addition to her Olympic-level accomplishments, Taylor spent four years rowing for the varsity eight at Yale University. Taylor led the Bulldogs to three Ivy League titles and three NCAA championships, including the 2010 championships when her boat outlasted the overall-champion University of Virginia. Serving as captain during her senior season at Yale, Taylor was a CRCA All-American honoree three times during her career. After competing at the London Olympics, Taylor became the first Yalie since 1984 to win a gold medal. The twenty-four year old, along with three of her fellow Bulldog Olympians, were honored for their accomplishments by the school program in October, 2012.
Taylor’s passion for rowing comes from the woman who got her started in the sport: her mother Lana, who passed away from cancer in 2010. Taylor attributes her accomplishments as a rower to her mother, having promised her two years ago that she would make it to the Olympics. The Colorado native not only fulfilled this promise, she won a gold medal while doing it. Taylor is also the granddaughter of the former Denver Broncos head coach, Red Miller, whom she often names as one of her personal heroes along with her mother. Having graduated from Yale with a degree in history, Taylor hopes to pursue a career in finance or non-profit work following her rowing career.
