High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! John Brendan Kelly, Sr., also known as Jack Kelly, (October 4, 1889 June 20, 1960) was one of the most accomplished oarsmen in the history of the sport of rowing. He was a triple Olympic Gold Medal winner, the first to do so in the sport of rowing. He won 126 straight races in the single scull (1x). He was the father of Grace Kelly, actress and Princess of Monaco (thus grandfather of Albert II, Prince of Monaco), and of John B. Kelly, Jr., an accomplished oarsman in his own right. At the time he won his races, rowing was at the height of its popularity. Kelly's exploits were well covered in newsprint. In many ways, he was a figure comparable to Babe Ruth or Jack Dempsey.
