Biography

Guido De Felip competed in the Antwerpen Olympics a month shy of his 16th birthday. As the coxswain for Ercole Olgeni and Giovanni Scatturin, he led the Italian boat to victory in the coxed pairs event, surprisingly beating the French European Champions. In 1923 and 1924 De Filip won an Italian title in the coxed fours. In 1926, he was again Italian champion with the fours and then changed to stroke seat of an outrigger boat, winning the 12 km endurance race from Milano to Caggiano. In 1956, De Felip carried the Olympic torch in the bow of a boat, when it passed through the Canale Grande of his hometown Venezia.
