4. ALUMS MEDAL AT LONDON SUMMER OLYMPICS

Eight Harvard alumni and one current student—sophomore women’s basketball player Temi Fagbenle—competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Half of them brought home medals, starting with rower Malcolm Howard ’05, who captained his Canadian team to the silver in the men’s eight. Twenty-four hours later, Esther Lofgren ’07-’09 and Caryn Davies ’04-05 won gold for the United States in the same event. Soon after that, Henrik Rummel ’09 won a bronze medal for the Americans in the coxless four, but it was what happened on the medal stand that earned him an abundance of media attention and made him the target of late-night talk show humor on a number of networks.
