When you're watching the Olympics this month, make sure to keep an eye out for the three former Eagles that will be competing for the USA.
BC has two alumni competing in sailing, both from the class of 2012. Annie Haeger and Briana Provancha will compete in the 470 race on August 10. You can watch their race on the NBC website at noon on the 10th. This is the first time either Haeger or Provancha has been to the Olympics, but they won their race at the 2015 Olympic Test Event.
Joe Maloy, the other former Eagle competing in Rio, is a swimmer from the class of 2008. Maloy's event is the Olympic triathlon competition, which takes place on August 18. The triathlon begins at 10 AM and can be streamed online. Maloy finished 16th at the Rio de Janeiro ITU World Olympic Qualification and is one of the top US competitors in this event. Great Britain's Brownlee brothers, who earned the gold and bronze triathlon medals in 2012, are looking to continue to dominate this event.
In addition to the 3 athletes competing at the Olympics, fencers Peter Souders (2012) and Brendan Anderson (2020) are in Rio serving as training partners.
NBC lets you set reminders for live streams, so make sure to check out their website if you don't want to miss these events.
