The womens eight won another gold:

Here they celebrate by throwing their coxwain Mary Whipple into the water.

According to this article, these ladies are not just strong on the water... they are also bad with the books:

"Caryn Davies has a bachelor's from Harvard and is pursuing a law degree from Columbia. Caroline Lind graduated from Princeton then earned a master's degree in accounting from Rider. Esther Lofgren has a degree in economics from Harvard. Susan Francia has a bachelor's and a master's degree from Penn. Stanford, Cal-Berkeley and Yale are also represented on this team. Several of the rowers have postgraduate degrees.

If you're looking for role models for your children, introduce them to the women's eight."

That's awesome.

Btw the coxwain is not one of the eight? I only now realized this.
