British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking was a member of the Oxford rowing team, before being paralysed due to ALS. Hawking joined the team as a coxswain, who controls steering and stroke rate, after finding himself feeling "isolated and lonely" in the college. Hawking was called the "adventurous type" by members and sometimes damaged boats by steering through very narrow gaps.
