Rusher, a 2018 graduate of Stanford, is at the USRowing Women's Quadruple Sculls Selection Camp. She is one of 10 athletes in contention. Looking for her first Olympics appearance, Rusher was an All-American in 2018.
The entire U.S. Olympic Rowing Team will be selected by June 6. The women's rowing program has had at least one alumna selected in each of the last four Olympic games.
