Just four years ago in Beijing the U.S. women's eight rowing team won gold and they did it again in London!
Their team has been a force to be reckoned with for a number of years. In 2006 they won the world title and since then haven't lost a competitive race since.
Though Mary Whipple doesn't contribute physically to the race as the coxswain, her coaching and steering at the front of the boat is vital. She's led the team to five world championships and now, two Olympic medals!
The other team members include: Caryn Davies, Caroline Lind, Eleanor Logan, Meghan Musnicki, Taylor Ritzel, Esther Lofgren, Francia and Erin Cafaro. All eight women were overjoyed as they crossed the finish line.
