Chapter 28: Tiff Wood ends up as a spare and suffers through his 3rd Olympics without rowing in any of the races. He puts together a race amongst the international spares. They go ahead and row. Halberstam describes it as odd. The chapter concludes explaining how Tiff Wood dismantles his scull when John Biglow races in the Olympic Games as the single sculler for the American team, a position he won during camp.
