Olympic Gold for Batesie!

Hey all. Just wanted to give you a little update about the Bates Olympian (see blog below). Bates graduate Andrew Byrnes (’05) won a gold medal yesterday in the men’s eight rowing event. Byrnes and his 7 teammates beat out Great Britain (Silver medal) and the U.S. (Bronze) to capture the gold medal for Team Canada. Below is a picture of Byrnes and his teammates after winning gold. The picture and a full article on Byrnes’ athletic achievements at both the olympics and at Bates can be found here.

Congratulations to Andrew and all of Team Canada!
