Athletes continue Dartmouth tradition at Winter Olympics

Posted 02/27/02

Seven outstanding athletes have written the latest chapter in the College's long history of association with the Olympic Games. During the recently completed XIX Olympic Winter in Salt Lake City, Utah, another two medals were won by Dartmouth Olympians, both in women's ice hockey.

The Big Green athletes competed in a range of winter sports, posting the overall results shown below. Nearly 160 Dartmouth women and men have now taken part in the winter and summer games as athletes, coaches or officials since 1908.

Three other Dartmouth athletes, who have overcome disabilities to excel in their sports, are scheduled to participate in the Paralympic Games coming up March 7-16, also in Salt Lake City.
