Rob Crane-Meet the Team
What would winning an Olympic medal mean to you?
It would mean the world. It is hard to quantify exactly what it, but I would be elated. It would be the culmination of years of hard work.
Rob Crane, who will represent the USA in the Laser class, was born into a family that is passionate about sailing. His competitive sailing began in the Optimist class, and in 1998 he won the Optimist North American Championship. Soon after, he advanced to the Laser Radial, and it wasn’t before long that he was highly competitive in the full-rig Laser. Crane, 26, had his breakout performance at the 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships, where he qualified for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Sailing Team.
