  • From Ukraine to Boston; Kurmakov is Simmons Crew
    November 15, 2017
    For Nikolay Kurmakov, a typical day begins by waking up at 4:00 a.m. to meet the Simmons College women’s crew team at the Riverside Boat Club for practice a little over an hour later. The rest of the day, or during any free time, is filled with tedious, but necessary tasks such as painting the oars, ordering the equipment, loading the boats in and out of storage, as well as making minor repairs on the boats. Most rowing programs have a number of people that they turn to in order to complete these assignments. Simmons College in Boston, however, is able to count on their head coach Nikolay Kurmakov and his irreplaceable work ethic to take on these duties as one individual.
