With Paul Costello, John Kelly, Sr., and Conn Findlay, Ken Myers is one of only four Americans to have won three rowing medals. The first came as a member of the Penn Barge four in 1920, partnered by the Federschmidt brothers, Erich and Franz and Carl Klose, with the Naval Academy coxswain, Sherm Clark, filling in at the rudder. Myers won two national single scull championships, both in 1929.
