    MCC members at London Olympics

    Aug 07, 2012

    Rower - and MCC member - Kim Crow with her bronze medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.Our long-standing and strong affinity with the Olympic movement has been further strengthened with several MCC members competing at the 2012 Games in London.

    Nine MCC members donned the green and gold across four sports in London, with three athletes among the medals in rowing events.

    Kim Crow, a former runner who switched to rowing in 2005 after injury, won a silver medal in the double sculls with Brooke Pratley.

    Some questioned the wisdom of Crow tackling two events in the Olympic regatta, but she silenced her doubters with a bronze medal in the women's single scull final the following day.

    Veteran Drew Ginn, a former Oarsome Foursome member and triple gold medallist, and teammate Will Lockwood added a silver medal in the men's four - it was the first time in four Olympics that the 37-year-old Ginn had tasted Drew Ginn with his silver medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games.defeat. A remarkable effort.

    Fellow rowers David Crawshay and Elizabeth Patrick also competed at the Games.

    Shooter Russell Mark competed in his sixth Olympics. Going one better, though, was Andrew Hoy, who competed in the Australian equestrian team for a record seventh Games.

    Mark Anthony returned for his second successive Games, while shooter Keith Ferguson made his Olympic debut.

    Congratulations to all our members who competed in London and represented our country with distinction.
