Stillwater, Minnesota has an impressive fleet of paddlewheel riverboats.
Here's a shot of Mike Ruffino rowing past them during his run in the Solo Distance race.
This was going downriver with the wind in his favor.
After the buoy turn, everything changed.
It was a windfight extraordinaire.
Each guy who rowed this course solo gained a new level of appreciation for the wind - and how it can be your best friend, and then your worst enemy.
Mike Ruffino gave an amazing performance,
and grabbed second place and the silver medal in this event.
