Gevvie Stone (@gevgevs) won a Silver Medal in Single Sculling at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Stone is also a Physician, graduating from Tufts School of Medicine while also training for the Olympics. She also competed in the single sculls at the 2012 Summer Olympics, where she placed 7th overall. In college while at Princeton, she won the women's Championship Singles race at the Head of the Charles Regatta six times.

In school, negative feedback from teachers occurs all the time. Stone mentions that sports have taught her to accept negative feedback and use it to improve in school, sports, or in general.
