Rowing Designer Jake Mercuri Wins Row to Rio Logo Contest

The other day, USRowing announced that Jake Mercuri is the winner of the Row to Rio logo contest. Mercuri’s logo was selected from over 120 entries through online voting and final selection committee nominations.

Chief Marketing Officer of USRowing, Beth Kohl, says in a press release ‘In choosing Jake Mercuri’s design, the committee loved the strong commitment to Rio depicted through the choice of the Brazilian colors and the flag, while incorporating the USA oars.’ The logo will be included in all aspects of USRowing and the National Rowing Foundation’s Row to Rio campaign, which Kohl said is designed to energize the rowing community to support the team training for Rio.
