Dartmouth well-represented in Olympics

Andrew Weibrecht, who graduated from Dartmouth last spring, added a bronze medal to his resume Feb. 19. The 24-year-old placed third in Super-G alpine skiing, just behind silver medalist Bode Miller.

Dartmouth sent seven alums and two current students to Vancouver for the Olympics.
Big Green sophomore Tommy Ford finished 26th in the giant slalom, ahead of Brown's Dow Travers '12, who finished 69th in the event.

But Dartmouth's Olympic ties go beyond the athletes. U.S. Olympic Committee CEO Scott Blackmun and former Vancouver mayor Gordon Campbell, who helped bring the Olympics to Vancouver, graduated from Dartmouth in 1979 and 1969, respectively, according to USA Today.
