Ruggero Verroca and Francesco Esposito dominated the lightweight men's double scull during the early 1980s, and they won the World Rowing Championships from 1980 to 1983 every year. Lightweight men's double scull was not an Olympic boat class at the time, and they qualified in the open weight class of the men's double scull, where they reached the A final and came a respectable fifth. Later that same month, they won the 1984 World Rowing Championships, and continued to row in different boat classes thereafter.[2][3]
