Congratulations to Amanda Elmore and the rest of the Women's eight for winning the gold at the Rio Olympics! Amanda Elmore has just become Harrison High School's (of Lafayette, IN) and Purdue Crew's first Olympic Champion as the women's eight won their third straight Olympic gold. Amanda Elmore has exemplified the success that athletes may find through rowing clubs such as Purdue's. Purdue and the Purdue Crew community stands proud for what Elmore has accomplished and wishes her and the rest of the women's eight success in the future.
Purdue Crew athletes and alumni should all stand taller with Purdue Pride as you all set and sustained Purdue Crew since inception so this and other opportunities were available to those who could stand to its rigors.
