Olympians

Going For Gold

In addition to their accomplishments at home, Western's athletes have had much international success.  Since the early 1900s, well over a hundred Western students and alumni have participated in both Summer and Winter Olympic games.  In particular, Western has produced many Olympic athletes in track and field and rowing, although the achievements of other athletes should not be overshadowed.

This exhibit shares the experiences of just a few of Western's Olympians.  Browse through the names to discover their accomplishments, disappointments and legacies.
