Yalies are London-bound to compete in the Olympics

Seven alumni athletes are heading to London for the 2012 Summer Olympics Games — and if you’re looking for them, you’ll find them by the water.

Stu McNay ’05 and crew Graham Biehl race downwind at the 2011 Miami Olympic Classes Regatta. McKnay is the skipper of the vessel.
