Gustav-Adolf Moths was a German rower who competed in the 1900 Summer Olympics. He was the coxswain of the German boat RC Favorite Hammonia, which won a bronze medal in the coxed fours final A. Those rowers were the first German rowers ever winning an Olympic medal. The IOC medal database credits the bronze medal to him, as Max Ammermann rowed only in the heats.
