Former University of Washington rower Scott Gault was named Monday to the US Olympic Men s Four squad, making him the third former Husky heading to London.

Gault will join Charlie Cole, Henrik Rummel and Glenn Ochal on the Men s Four squad, pending final approval from the US Olympic Committee.

Gault, a returning 2008 Olympian, finished fifth in men s quadruple sculls in Beijing. He and Cole were members of the men s four that qualified the boat for London with its fourth-place finish at the 2011 World Rowing Championships. Rummel competed in the men s eight and Ochal in the men s quadruple sculls at last year s world championships.

Former Huskies Brett Newlin and Giuseppe Lanzone are also going to London in the Men s Eight.

The Women s Eight and Men s Quadruple Sculls will be named June 22. Coxswain Mary Whipple, another former Dawg who won gold in Beijing, is likely to be in the Women s Eight.
