Description

With Boathouse Row and miles of challenging river, Philadelphia has long been a center for rowing enthusiasts. Who better to represent this tradition than Olympic champion John B. Kelly Sr., who won the single sculls in 1920 and the doubles in 1920 and 1924. A bronze sculpture of Kelly at the oars is located near the rowing grandstands.
