Favorite Sports Memory:
One of my favorite sports memories is of winning the Head of the Charles with three of my good friends. I had not been rowing for very long, so it was one of those really great moments when you are waiting for the results, and you have a “gut feeling” that it went well, but you’re just not sure…Another of my favorite sports memories is from the past winter Olympics in Vancouver. A fellow “Islander”, Heather Moyse, won a gold medal in the 2-woman bobsleigh. Having known Heather, and worked with her in rugby years earlier, it was a great moment to see her win, and then to receive her medal!
