Fourth-Place Finish for Sarah Groff ’99

Newman, Anna – August 6, 2012

Congratulations to Sarah Groff ’99 on her fourth-place finish in the women’s triathlon at the 2012 Summer Olympics! In her Olympic debut, Ms. Groff was the highest American finisher and missed the bronze medal by only 10 seconds. Afterward Ms. Groff said, “My goal going into this race was to be there with 1,000 meters to go. I was. You know, I’ve got to be proud of that. Fourth is the ‘worst’ position to be in, but at the end of the day I’m an Olympian. I get to showcase this awesome sport to millions of people. I’m really proud to be on this team. Obviously it would have been better to come home with a medal, but I’m proud of the process and proud of our team.”
