Dr. Genevra 'Gevvie' Stone, M14, is a two-time Olympic rower, representing the USA in the women’s single at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics. She learned to row in high school with the Winsor School team on the Charles River. Gevvie went on to earn an A.B. from Princeton, where she was a member of the 2006 NCAA Champion Eight. During the summers of 2006 and 2007, she won the Under-23 World Championships in the Eight and Quad, respectively.
After failing to make the Beijing Olympic team, Gevvie began medical school at Tufts and started rowing the single, first for fun and then more seriously. Coached by her father, she trained on the Charles River. The first time she represented the USA was in the single at the 2010 World Cup. Since then, she has been the USA’s entry in the women’s single on five senior national teams, including eight World Cups (earning three World Cup medals), three World Championships, and two Olympics (earning a silver medal in Rio). With her seventh win, last fall (2016), she tied the record for the most wins in the Championship Single event at the Head of the Charles Regatta.
Throughout her rowing career, Gevvie has enjoyed sharing her love and knowledge of the sport. She has coached at camps, at the Winsor School, and at Harvard University. In addition, she has presented at a number of rowing workshops and numerous rowing programs, including the Tufts rowing team.
Gevvie graduated from Tufts University School of Medicine in 2014. She will begin a residency in emergency medicine this summer. After her residency, she plans to pursue a fellowship in sports medicine.
