Awarded to the winner of the Men’s K-2 Senior 200m (Note: was 500m)
Eugene and his twin brother Henry emigrated to the United States in 1968 from Poland.
In 1968 Eugene was training on the Polish National Team and hoping to be selected to the Polish Olympic team in that same year. Instead, while the team was training in Bulgaria, he defected and escaped making his way to the United States.
As Polish Jews in communist Poland, they did not have the life that they hoped to live and so instead took a chance and came to America. They were a formidable K-2 team in the US and eventually, after citizenship papers came through Henry was able to compete for Team USA in the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, Canada.
