Three Ivy Leaguers had a chance for medals on Friday in what marked the final day of competition for the League’s 49 athletes in London.
Harvard’s Alex Meyer placed 10th out of 25 in the men’s 10K open water race with a time of 1:50:48.2 and Yale’s Sarah Lihan and her teammate Amanda Clark finished the women’s 470-class sailing medal race 10th out of 10 with a time of 36:07.
Rounding out the 2012 Game for the Ivy Leaguers, Cornell’s Morgan Uceny competed in the 1,500m finals, an event in which the US has never won a medal. Uceny was running with the pack with 400m to go but unfortunately for Uceny and the US, she fell and was unable to finish the race.
