In his era, at 6-7½, Jim Storm was the tallest US Olympian who did not play on the basketball team. He was the stroke in a double with Cy Cromwell at the 1964 Olympics where they lost by several seconds to a Soviet crew. Storm had attended Pomona College but was rowing for the San Diego RC in 1964. In 1967 he finally won a gold medal, again in the double sculls (with James Dietz), but this time at the Pan American Games. He graduated in 1971 from the University of California Medical School and became a practicing psychiatrist.
