To honor the London Games and the athletes participating in them, The Slanch Report will be bringing you THRICE DAILY a Hot Olympian of the Day. Each day we will bring you three (likely unknown-to-you) Olympians who, while maybe not quite worthy of a place on the medal stand, certainly are worth being placed on a pedestal for us to enjoy. Celebrate them all on the Hot Olympians page.
Originally from Boston (WOOOO!), US rower Sara Hendershot spent her formative years growing up in Connecticut. A first-time Olympian, she just barely missed out on the bronze medal in the pairs rowing competition. A proud Princeton Tiger, only 24, Hendershot has plenty of chances in future Olympics to make it onto the medal stand.
Fortunately, in the meantime she has that fine Princeton education to keep her going. Well that and that she’s so adorably cute that it hurts.
