LONDON — Sometimes destiny finds a person when they least expect it. For U.S. Olympic rower Will Miller, 28, destiny caught up with him while studying engineering at Northeastern University.
After playing lacrosse in high school, Miller entered university not really expecting to join the crew team, but was recruited and accepted the challenge. As the son of a former rowing Olympian, joining the crew team was not far-fetched at all.
“I had been around the sport,” said Miller, “my father was pretty involved.”
