In addition to my (hopefully becoming more frequent) personal blogging here, I’ll be working with USRowing on the 2013 National Training Center Blog. I’m excited for the opportunity to help represent the athletes at the Training Center, sharing our funny stories, personalities, and insight as we head into the first year of the 2016 cycle.
USRowing is excited to announce its newest addition to the website – the 2013 National Team Training Center Blog! Princeton Training Center’s Meghan O’Leary will share her insights on training, racing and the life of an elite rower.
O’Leary began rowing less than three years ago after an Internet search led her to a small rowing club, Riverfront Recapture, located on the banks of the Connecticut River.
The rest is history.
Before she came to discover her love for rowing, O’Leary was a two-sport athlete at the University of Virginia, playing both softball and volleyball. After graduating with her undergraduate and Master’s degrees from UVa, she went on to work for ESPN.
She joined the Princeton Training Center in November of 2011 after attending a National Team Identification Camp earlier that fall. Giving up her desk job for a boat and oars, O’Leary hopes to make the 2016 Olympic Team.
Join O’Leary on her journey to Rio. Access the 2013 National Team Training Center Blog here.
