OLYMPICS | Full schedule for Elis competing in London

LONDON — Less than 48 hours after Queen Elizabeth declares the London Games open this Friday, Bulldogs will be on the water competing in the Olympics. A total of six Yalies have qualified to represent three different countries in two sports during the Games of the XXX Olympiad.

Four rowers — Canada’s Ashley Brzozowicz ’04, Australia’s Tess Gerrand ’10, and America’s Taylor Ritzel ’10 and Charlie Cole ’07 — will row at the Eton Dorney Rowing Center on Dorney Lake during the Games. Brzozowicz, Gerrand and Ritzel will compete against each other in the women’s eight while Cole will row in the men’s heavyweight four competition.

Sailors Sarah Lihan ’10 and Stu McNay ’05 will compete for the US in the women’s and men’s 470 class races, respectively. They will work to progress through 10 races in eight days in order to qualify for the final medal round.

A seventh Yalie, American Jamie Redman ’08, was selected as an alternate to the US Rowing team. She has been training in a wide range of boats, including singles, pairs, doubles, fours and eights, to prepare for competition in case a teammate is unable to race, according to her blog.

Don’t despair if you are stuck home studying for the MCAT or just avoiding the black pudding and clotted cream. Even from across the pond, you can watch the Bulldogs race for gold. NBC Olympics will be live streaming all 302 events of the 32 sports online in addition to airing coverage on TV.

A full schedule of the Bulldog Olympian’s events is listed below, with all times Eastern. Some crew races will be broadcast on local NBC affiliates and all events will be available online. American readers outside of Connecticut can enter a zip code to check on broadcast information for local NBC affiliates.
