The Village of Nyack is extremely proud to have Charlotte Buck, a local Nyacker representing the US Olympic Rowing Team in the Tokyo 2021 Games. Charlotte Buck was selected to the US National Team and will be competing in the women’s eight in Tokyo! Charlotte started rowing with the Rockland Rowing Association between her senior year at Nyack High School and her first year at Columbia University. She went to on to captain her team at Columbia. Not done with rowing after she graduated, she continued to train while coaching for Rockland Rowing. Last year, following some amazing virtual erg competitions where she finished second to the women’s world record holder, Charlotte was invited to the US Rowing training/selection camps for the women’s team. She spent the winter in Chula Vista and this spring in Princeton training with the national team and going through the selection process. And… she crushed it! (Like we knew she would.) She is currently rowing in the 7-seat of the US Women’s eight. Rockland Rowing Association and the Village of Nyack are so proud of this amazing athlete and look forward to watching her success at the 2021 Olympic games.
