WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- The United States rowing squad for the London Games has been completed after three crews won finals at the national Olympic trials.

Ken Jurkowski easily won the men's single sculls by nearly two boat lengths to qualify for his second straight summer games.

Sara Hendershot and Sarah Zelenka, part of the foursome that won gold at the 2011 world championships in Bled, Slovenia, rallied to beat five-time national team members Jamie Redman and Amanda Polk in the women's pair event.

Silas Stafford and Tom Peszek will represent the U.S. in the men's pair after winning their trial on Mercer Lake in West Windsor, N.J.
