Olympic Update: Fifth in the WORLD!

Margot concluded her Olympic racing with a 5th place finish in the Women’s Quad event.  She, like most world class athletes, was disappointed returning without a medal but I am sooo proud of my former Buckeye teammate.  It is an amazing accomplishment to have made it to the Olympics and to the grand finals of her event.  It is a true honor to represent your country in the Olympic Games.  Very few individuals get that opportunity.  Hundreds and thousands and maybe millions of athletes strive to reach that goal in their lifetime and only the very best of the best make it.  I know, without hearing the details yet, that she raced her guts out and left everything she had on the water in Bejing.  Congratulations Margot on representing the USA and racing your heart out.
